Winterizing an IO

2 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone could give me instructions for winterizing an IO? I have a 1997 Alpha 1 5.7 liter Mercruiser. I just paid over $300 to have it winterized. Is this something the average guy can do himself? Is there a lot of tools or machinery needed to do this? I know how to sabilize fuel but would need instruction in flushing or draining the motor and also changing of the oil and fogging the engine along with anything else that needs to be done. Any help would be appreciated.

I also need help on picking out a stainless steele prop for this motor. What prop would you recommend? Model number and make would be helpful.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
