Sail Drive Oil

What could I use to pump out my "milky" saildrive oil until I can get the boat hauled?
I know the milky means water contamination and I am trying to figure out what to use to get the hypoid 90 out from the top.

A Jabsco hand pump using the smaller hose you might reach down farther.

Mine just drains. Two screws, at the top and bottom. Take 'em out, hold a container underneath, and Bob's yer uncle. (Well, maybe position the container FIRST.)

Then I fill from the bottom with a handpump forcing anything nasty to ooze out the top.


But usually everything drains nicely.

Conmera probably doesn't have an SD20. Our SD20's are rather inconvenient to drain.

BTW: Let me know what caused your milky oil when you get it sorted out, please. I had the same problem on one saildrive, took the lower end apart and am replacing all the seals. Some mechanic said there were other seals up top too, that could allow water in.

Will do; last time we had boat hauled last June there was fishing line wrapped around drive.
