What do you Guys do during winter to keep your motor safe from block cracking or anything else , if you don't have a place to keep it heated ? I will be using it from dec to feb and after that I can winterize it but what do you do during season to keep it safe?
Thanks Jared

+10 on what's been said already. I always trimmed down after putting on trailer and even cranked the motor for a few seconds to force the water out. Also never hurts to trickle charge your battery the night before so it's strong for those cold mornings and a tight, frozen motor.

1. remove lower unit, replace water pump
2. drain lower unit oil and replace the vent and drain seals. torque to set them
3. pull plugs shoot fogging oil and hand turn flywheel to coat
4. drain fuel from carbs and remove the bowl drain to get any water out.
5. replace fuel filter
6. get rid of your gas in your tanks and put in your car.


in the spring add fresh gas and your golden.
