Re: Winterizing E-TEC 135HO in Canada Help

Alyaz, It did. I actually had the chance to take the boat out after winterizing it the first time because the weather cooperated, and I topped up the gas and double 2+4 dose then I winterized again. This is a great feature!!

If you can, take the boat out for a quick spin again to get the treated gasoline flowing completely through the motor to protect the fuel system over the winter, then once again, perform the winterizing.  You do not burn enough fuel on the flusher when you add 2+4 to the gas and expect it to circulate through the whole motor.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

Re: Winterizing E-TEC 135HO in Canada Help

I just re-read this thread and the statement " we will winterize it the traditional way by fogging each cylinder" jumped out at me.
Carbureted engines have one air flow path (carburetor) per cylinder and fogging oil can be sprayed in each cylinder. The fuel injected engines for the past 10+ years have a single throttle body so one cannot fog each individual cylinder.
