    Well its time to do some maint on my engine. Normally I have it done at the marina, but right now I am broke.. :'( School tuition is due next month. I have a 70 2 stroke, what exactly goes into a yearly service? Spark plugs, lower unit oil change but what else? Thanks for the direction guys.

    I'd also install a new thermostat(if it wasn't done at last service) and make sure the poppet valve isn't crusted up with salt deposits.

    Don't forget to pull the prop to inspect the hub and shaft.
    Clean out the old grease, re-lube and reinstall.
