    Default How to winterize an outboard jet?

    Iím looking for advice on how to winterize an outboardjet. Iíve never had a jet before. It is a 70hp Evinrude 2 stroke. So far Iíve been told to fill a tote ofantifreeze and place it under the intake to run antifreeze through the engine, andthen use fogger for the carburetors and spark plugs. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Purchase an adapter that will fit your motor to accept a garden house, commonly used to flush your motor in the driveway or take it to the local lake and back it in so you can run it.
    Run the motor to warm it up and fog the cylinders according to directions on the can.
    That's it. No need for antifreeze, there is no water sitting in your motor when it's off. Leave the motor stored in its vertical position to prevent any rain/melt water from pooling in the foot and freezing.
    Make sure to hit all your grease zerks so you pump out any moisture.
    Pretty easy stuff.
