couchtater i got a 9.9 140 cc from 1978. It has a hard time starting when cold and starts on half a pull when warm/hot. What's the best oil to use, when my late father bought it he never left me a manual for it. Synthetic or non. Thanks in advance.

volvo penta outboard

This VP 90 outboard was last serviced by a boat yard. When I drained the the gear lube, it came out very black. The gears do not appear worn and no grit or metal flakes.
It would be a great help if you could ask your friend if his lube drains out black and what he uses when changing his gear lube.

VP90 sail

I have a VP 90 Sail.
Also hard to start when hot. Do these motors have points?
When I drained the gear lube, it came out very black. If it had synthetic lube, do I need to continue using synthetic?

Volvo Penta Outboard?

I had a 9hp Volvo on a Catalina 25 for about 8 years. Good engine, but somewhat difficult to start when hot. Other than that, the alternator works great and the engine is light weight. Dick Elliott.
