I am no expert, but I suspect that the heavier gear oil (80/90) will seal better at the wear bushing and shaft O Ring, eliminating some water passing through to the C Drive.
I am really very happy to have accidentally learned this. It is a shame that there is zero downstream communication from Amel on this sort of thing. I guess it pays to hang out at an Amel facility and soak up new information.
On our next haulout, we will use 80/90 gear oil for the C Drive and Bow Thruster.
