      Comments about Sierra Mercury Lower Unit Gear Case Drain Plug 18-2244:

      I am very happy with the product! I read some of the reviews here and some stated they didn't receive a gasket. Both of my plugs (18-224) &(18-2375) did come with them. Only issue is these are special order so they do not ship out as fast as overtons normally does.

          This drain plug is a LOT easier to install than the stock drain plug, you don't have to mess around with a - screw driver and loose lower unit oil.

                    When the catalog said "Kit", I assumed that there would be a plug for the vent hole and the fill hole. Now I need to order a second and I'm ready to winterize my boat now.

                        A:

                        They are both plugs, however one is magnetic and will attract any free roaming metal shavings or particles that can harm your engine.
