I have an 185 HP OMC V-6 I/O and it was leaking after taking it out of dry storage. once the lower unit was opened up by (my new) OMC mechanic I was informed that it sat full of water all winter. My (former) mechanic says he checked the dip stick on the top unit so he figured the bottom was okay. I thought they were two seperate units? Did he screw up or am I wrong? MarthaH

OIL FLOATS ON WATER. THE OUTDRIVE IS TWO PIECES BUT ARE CONNECTED FOR OILING. EVERY YEAR THE OIL SHOULD BE DRAINED AND REFILLED AND PERIODICALLY THE DRAIN PLUG SHOULD BE LOSSENED AND CHECKED FOR WATER. HOPE YOUR NEW MECHANIC IS BETTER.
