If it was a factory install, it should be under the starboard bow seat. Lift up the seat cushion and look towards the rear.

It may be easier to pull the two water lines at the engine and blow air through the core.

Thanks Zabooda - I'm guessing the core doesn't have a plug or if it does it's hard to get to? I'll follow the lines back to the motor as suggested.

Hook engine to a water source rum until hot, including heater, cut of water and switch to antifreeze.

THe dealer does mine but that is how one of the guys I know does it. 1 beer job.

The core is similar to a car heater core with two hose connections on top. Blow compressed air through one hose and drain from the other into the bilge then blow through the other line.

Thanks again for the help. I think I'll go with blowin' out the hoses since I've already drained the motor. I like the idea of the antifreeze, you get everything in one shot - next year I think I'll be doin' that.

Zegm thanks for rubbing it in buddy!

Wind Chill this morning was 22, now you guys might be used to that but everyone around here is freezing to death walking around in the only coats they have, you know the light fleece ones! I almost bought a hat today at sportsauthority!!!!! :oops:

Hey, zegm - I left the house this morning it was -5 degrees. :shock: It climbed to 6 above later in the day. :D Sun went down and the temp dropped again. :( It'll take your breath away it gets that cold. I'll bet its even colder up nort in Wisconsin where sled lives. :roll: You betcha! - Deerfield

Man I wouldn't make it up there! We average 12 nights a year below 32F. I have never seen it not make it to the 40's during the day. Today I am not sure it made it to 40! And this makes it all the harder to wait for our boat as I cannot do anything fun to pass the time. Unlike you there is no winter sports to take advange of the cold weather os it is pretty much just dreay here. 5 weeks left before we pick up the LS!!!!
