    I just traded a motorcycle for a '92 17ft Glasstream bowrider with a 3.0 liter OMC sterndrive in it and I am wanting to do any and all routine maintenance on it I can. This is my first go around with a sterndrive and I was wondering if anybody had any tips, tricks, or suggestions that would help. The one question I have is when you refill the outdrive with gear oil do you fill it to the vent plug on the side of the foot or or to the plug on top with the dipstick, and roughly how much oil does it hold. Thanks alot.
