We have a 3GM30F in our boat. I'm not familiar with a "3GMD" variant. What does the "D" signify?

But I do know about that discrepancy. The manuals contradict themselves. I was told by a mechanic that I trust to use straight 30W motor oil in our Kanzaki transmission. We check the level with the dipstick unscrewed.
