    Default Summerization Process

    SUMMERIZATION PROCESS

    1. Install boat drain plug
    2. Check platform bracket screws for tightness
    3. Reattach all disconnected hoses from winter if not done. Raw water
    strainer, v drive ,impeller housing, J tube, exhaust mani coupling.
    4. Reinstall motor drain plugs and knock sensors, v drive drain bolts, tranny
    cooler bolt, impeller and cover, and muffler drain bolt, if not done.
    5. Clean battery terminals and connectors and install.
    6. Check alignment of prop shaft coupler to v drive or tranny coupler. “Best to do in
    water”
    7. Check fluid levels of motor oil, tranny oil ,v drive oil and top up if
    necessary.
    8. Check grease in trailer bearings , brake fluid in reservoir, tire air pressure , and electrical.
    9. Remove bag from flame arrestor if placed.
    10. Turn key to power fuel pump.
    11. Start motor and let any fogging oil burn off. Check for water leaks, and
    oil leaks around oil filter from winterizing oil change.
    12. Change and gap new spark plugs.
    13. Replace fuel filter.
    14. Reinstall speedo pick ups on mdc unit under dash if equipped.






    This is not meant to be a comprehensive list, just what I do or have done on my boats. Personally after winterization I perform 3 and 4 which makes the spring process less time consuming.

    They are found on older boats that have the 2 transom pitot speedos. Before they went to paddle wheel sensors. Water can travel up the tubes get into the MDC freeze and frig it up

    Okay how about this one or is there a thread on how to do it somewhere?

    6. Check alignment of prop shaft coupler to v drive coupler. “Best to do in water”
    I'm thinking about self summerizing this time so I don't have to take time off work to get it down to the dealer on one of our non-existent non-rainy days. Plus I've got so much torn apart right now I may as well give it a go....
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.
