Maintenance Products Question

2 posts in this topic

I am, as probably most of you are going to be doing some routine maintenance on my/your motor this fall for the winter storage. Fogging oil, oil, waterproof grease etc...

Should I be getting this stuff from the dealer? I know the dealerships are always more expensive. Or, is their a better place to get my lubes and oils? Online?? I have no clue and could use some help, I have never had to buy this stuff before.

Thanks..

You can purchase many of these product at your marine dealer, hardware store or places like Walmart. This year I have started using more Amsoil products which you can order right from them online. Thier website is at the top of this page and Don is very helpful in steering you in the right direction.

Being your first time doing your winter motor work, make sure you ask all the questions you have here or you can use the search feature for any archived subjects of interest. One does not want to miss anything and end up having a suprise next spring that could run into some serious dollars.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
