Borg Warner, Velvet Drive ( How to check oil level)

Postby BeaconMarineBob » Sat Jan 20, 2018 1:55 pm

We regularly get ask how to check the oil level in the Trojan with a Velvet Drive.

How to check fluid leave in your BW trans.

"Let the trans/ engine get to operating temp, then have someone ready by the dipstick, shut the motor down, and have that person immediately pull the dipstick clean it then put it back in and check it. This has to be done as quick as possible because the fluid will flow back into the trans from the oil cooler and lines.

Add fluid and repeat till its right. Then let the boat sit overnite, pull the dipstick, and note where it is cold, you can then file a small mark onto the stick and that will be your cold level."
