2005 E-Tec 75hp

Hey Folks,

I purchased a used pontoon boat that has a 2005 E-Tec 75hp motor that did not include operators manual. I am in Minnesota and I want to winterize the motor but not sure on the procedure?

I did see on Youtube how easy it is but most of what is shown are what look to be newer motors and controls. 

Does anyone know if the procedure is different? If so, does anyone know the correct one for my vintage?

Great motor by the way!

TIA

Kris

You can also find videos illustrating the self-winterizing procedure on the  Evinrude website and on Youtube
