Author Topic:   Thoughts on Outboard Winterizing Process

I scanned back through the posts for recent winterizing posts and I also reviewed Jim's winterizing article.

Jim's article mentions running the engine out of gas as part of the process. I have seen others that just talk about putting a stabalizer in the fuel, but not running the engine out of the gas. I have done this in the past on an engine I used to own where I added the stabalizer and then stalled the engine by spraying the fogging oil. Then I would remove the plugs and spary oil in the cylinder and turn over the engine with the pull rope to ensure lubrication.

I have a 35hp 1985 Johnson that I bought this season. I just wondered what practice others follow for similar engines. I debated taking the engine to a shop for winterizing, but it seems like a waste.

If I missed a post on this please let me know. Thanks for any thoughts.
