Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Problem changing transmission oil on Santorin 1991

Good evening everybody and thank you for your replies.
What I intend as the cube (in aluminum) is the following:
The expansion tank is the following:
The oil is not going down from the transmission cube to the propeller foot...
I don't understand why, the only thinking now is that in 2011 the transmission have been disassembled and the conical gasket between the cube and the lower part has been substituted with a big oring as we couldn't find the original one at that time.... The mechanic the made the job at that time told me today that this cannot cause and oil blockage and also the transmission properly worked for 5 years...I hope he is right!
Now I was thinking to try putting the oil with a pressure pump from the lower hole, the one used to discharge the oil, in order to see if the oil is going up till the cube transmission and verify that there isn't any obstruction.
I also didn't tried with a warm oil as suggested by Olivier and shall try....
P.s. I could not verify the exact quantity of oil drained from the transmission as someone in the shipyard thrown it away before I could measure it.
Suggestions are always welcome.
Thanks and regards.
