100 Hour Suzuki DF140 maintenance
After reading a THT thread about changing oil in a 4-stroke, I have a few issues I would like others opinions. I have a Suzuki DF140 now out of warranty, so do I take it to the dealer or change the oil myself, here are the issues I know of during the oil change in addition to changing the oil every 100 hours, maybe there are more.
The DF 140 has internal zincs in the water jackets, do you guys change them out yourself, how hard is that?
What about software updates?? Do you guys changing your own oil even think about them? Can a do-it-yourself guy get access to software updates from Suzuki?
Service bulletins, how can you get access to this information on your Suzuki outboard?
I live in SW Florida so lots of shallow water, I like to change out the water pump impeller every year or 100 hours, what about everybody else??
Lubrication, I think there is a special grease that goes in a few of the grease locations on the DF 140 according to my dealer, what is everybody using for this application?
