   I took the easy ( but more expensive route). Go down to your local boat
supply house and look for a gear lube pump.  Its a plastic pump that screws
into the top of the 90W gear lube jug for pumping the stuff into the lower
unit of the outdrive.  If I remember right the price is <$15.  You run a
tube into the fill hole from the pump and pump away until it starts to come
out the hole, then put the plug in quick.
