Good observation and it goes to show that paperwork can't always be trusted. My guess is the the tech writer copied and pasted the wrong info - over and over!

I just use what the gearbox calls for SAE 30HD. Readily available just about anywhere (where I live). Last was a bottle of Castrol from local Hardware store.

Re: Oil for Kanzaki Marine Gear/Yanmar

My transmission specified ATF type A (Automatic Transmission Fluid) I believe Type refers to Ford ATF and type B to GM ATF. But don't quote me on this please.
I have 2000 Beneteau 461 with a Yanmar 4JH3TE engine and a Kanzaki KBW20 transmission.
I just lost my shaft lock nut with in the shaft coupling. I got a new nut (47mm diameter) but having problems finding a nut wrench. The nut has 4 indentations to grip a tool ??
If I can figure out how to post pictures I will attach a photo.
