    Default jetaway gear oil?

    What type of gear oil is everyone using. Does it matter? Any old gear oil. I was thinking about Lucus Gear oil. I have some of Hi-tech oil too but was wondering about alternatives.

    90% of the game is half mental... The pursuit of the unknown is priceless & gratifying . Sometimes it just takes good old fashion balls. No amount of reasoning or evaluation can deem it right or wrong. At the end of the day stick with whatever gives the person in question morning wood LOL

    Thanks I have some so I will see if it is enough. The gasket was leaking at the bottom. I am replacing it and was just curious about the different gear oils being run in them. Would seem that about any would work, I May be wrong, I will ask him and see. I need new gasket too.

    You might want to ask him about a oil feeder/reservoir that sits on top if your running up and down river all the time. Helps keep it out your bilge.

    I`ve used 90 wt with just enough ATF poured in to give it a red tint for the past 8 years with no problem.

    Thanks for the information guys, I had enough of HTP's oil left but added a bit of Lucus oil additive into it. Got the leak fixed to so no more messy bilge.

    Mike are you still running the ratchet that was on the boat when you bought it from me?

    Cool, Rebuilt as in new gaskets or was it broken some how? Worked great last I remember, the only thing I noticed about it is if I made a long run down the lake for several miles it would get a little warm.
