Any body have any tips on changing the transmission fluid on a v-drive? I have read that there is supposed to be a drain plug underneath but I couldn't find anything. I'd rather not pump it out; but if that is the only way, obviously I'll have too. Any tips, tricks, pointers,or things to be careful of would be great!!

Just passing on what I have heard. Pump out with a turkey baster, replace same amount as pumped out.

Way easier to pump it out I imagine, and cleaner. No v-drive here but we pump out our direct drive. Speaking of which, if you have a transmission and a v-drive gear box, don't forget to do both with the mfr's recommended fluids

I have yet to change my Vdrive and transmission oil, but i will do it next year before the season. I would highly suggest a Pella Pump. I got mine from and made changing my oil a breeze. I just bought my first Vdrive boat so a little anxious about getting in there and changing all those fluids, but the pella pump made it very easy to change the oil!!!

Thanks everyone for your tips!!

Anyone know what type of oil/fluid to put in the gearbox on the other side of the transmission?

If you have a Walter v-drive it takes SAE30 non detergent.
