Rick, I don't know about the type 'C' but if it says it's ok for outboard use you should be fine with the Lubrimatic. I ran Lubramatic last season and just changed it Saturday and it looked good. Unless your a gear head or a performance nut (nothing wrong with either!!) any lower unit oil formulated for outboards should work ok for you.



When you change it just look for any water in the oil. if there is you probably have a seal thats leaking and needs replaced.
