I changed oil
yesterday. We are about to bring boat
up on the hard
I rang a volvo penta
. I asked about oils other than premium price volvo penta oil
. He said Castrol RX Super, which is widely used and well regarded here in Oz. Appears to meet all the oil spec requirements contained in the engine
user manual, for engine
and reverse gear
. Anyone else using this? Any thoughts?
For reverse gear
, manual just says fill to "correct level". It was hard to tell where that is before removing oil. Spec's say capacity is 0.56 litres. I put about that amount in, but still cant really see where oil level is - yes i screwed in dip stick properly. There's a notch on the dip stick, i assume level should be above that. Or do people just put in the specified capacity? Can you overfill with the reverse gear?
