4 stroke 25/30hp jet maintenance
What is involved to winterize a 4 stroke jet outboard engine. I really don't wanna take the boat to the dealer if i can do this myself. Oil change, spark plug change, pump in new grease in 4 fittings not a problem. The lower unit is my concern. What needs to be done with the lower unit?
Bought this set up in April at a dealer, said its best i bring it down early Sept. to have it winterized. I asked why so early? answer was 1st week in Oct. we get swamped. Well i plan to fish the Juniata up thru Oct. maybe into Nov. Thank you...
