How to Service an Outboard Motor?

Answer

Your outboard engine was hopefully winterized and now is ready for its annual service. You could take your outboard to your local marine mechanic to do this service. Or you might want to do the various tasks yourself if you are reasonably confident about your abilities. Each task is quite simple to do - nothing too difficult. You need a small selection of tools, some grease, lubricant spray, engine oil and gear oil. Once you have these things around you are ready to start the servicing.
