Re: Amel Santorin Propeller Question


Thanks so much for all of the responses.  We are checking the transmission and gearbox now.  Question:  when do you normally check the gearbox oil - while the engine is running and/or warm, or when it is cold? Also, do you use the same oil as for the engine (15 W 40)? The mechanic in Le Marin, Martinique changed the gearbox oil and used the same oil, so just wondering. 

By the way, the engine is a Volvo Penta MD22L 50 HP, not the original Perkins Prima.
