175 pro xs 4 stroke
« on: Nov 25, 2023, 06:27 PM »
Questions first year owning this motor and do not want to take the 4 hour or more trip back to the dealer but I have winterized my other motors just cannot figure out this motor for winterizing the lower unit. I do not see a drain or level plug anywhere.

Our 250 pro sx has the vent and drain plug in the bearing hub area behind the prop. PM sent.

Thanks for the help, the one video I had found earlier showed the vent on the side still. I took the prop off and took the bottom bolt out amd no oil came out so I just put it back in. Will go and take both out like the one video showed. Thanks again for all the help, always enjoy the help I get from the people here.

Top bolt is the vent hole for the oil to flow.

Pulled both bolts and no oil came out for a bit but slowly started to come out. Thanks again for all the great help.

You're welcome. Drop the lower unit to its lowest position.
