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.

So just another question as finding props usually are not that hard for me but this one has a 16x14p and it stands up right away and puts everything right there. Have been talking with a couple others around with the boat and they went to a 19 pitch and they got better top end speed out of it, but also changed the computer to up horse powered, but said a 17 pitch is what they should have gone to but I cannot find what 17 pitch prop can go on this motor. Really do not want to spend 300 bucks or more on stainless and hate to spend money and the prop not fit.  Thanks in advance for my questions. Have a good spring everyone.

Youíre only gaining, maybe, a few miles per hour with the prop change. The fish donít care how fast you get there.😁 Leave it alone and go fishing!!😎👍🏻

I know I might only gain a few mph but I think if I could get to 38 or 40 might be better and not throw everyone out of the back as I punch it to head to the next spot. Lots of out of the hole thrust moves everything to the back if I am not careful how I push the throttle down. Thought this might help when pulling the kids on the tune as well can maybe control it a bit better but just looking around. Thanks for the reply.
