Posting on the fly today, but re-read the neck plate on the 3 hp 1963 Gale Bucaneer and #3 reads: "Keep Gear Housing filled with Outboard Grease." Can anyone please dumb this down for me (no manual yet.) Does this mean I can quit looking for the upper plug and it doesn't use Gear oil? Will any axle grease work? Nearest boat dealer is 30 miles from here. Will I need a special grease gun? Had motor running a good five minutes last night and p-hole was hard and steady. Thanks for all of your help here at Board.Really good info.
Best den.
