Greetings fellow houseboaters! I recently purchased a 1974
Nautaline 43 and don't know much about it yet. The boat set
pretty much unused for a few years and I want to do some
maintenance prior to winterization. Oil change, Transmission
oil change, etc.
It's a Mercruiser stern drive Model 225II-TR and has ford 302
engines. In the owners manual it says to use Type A, Suffix A
or Dextron ATF in the transmission, none of those seem to exist
today and the auto stores don't have a clue. What's a
compatible ATF to use?
Second question is on power trim oil. The manual says
Quicksilver Formula 4 SAE 20W or SAE 20-20W. I can't find the
Quicksilver and no one seems to be able to explain what
20-20W oil is. Is regular 20W oil okay to use? Any info
