You cannot test the ignition system with a test light despite what the youtube video shows....use a meter. You can remove #1 org wire and put it on the pack terminal of a firing cylinder to test coil....

Ahh nice. Ok. I was reading elsewhere it could mess up bearings or gum up the engine.

I was already mad for losing the nut from the water intake grates on the lower unit. Lost it in the grass after clearing out barnacles from the intake and paid $15 for a replacement. Already felt like a fool & then I doubled down with the gear lube mistake! Haha! Nice to see I’m entertaining people here too!

Glad to hear I can leave it as-is with 4 quarts of fresh oil in there. From now on I’m adding colored tape to the gear lube bottle and keeping it in separate bags!
