Winterizing carb engines; using the Polaris engine fogging kits 2872635, 2871480, etc
Protecting the engine exterior, clearing exhaust waterbox, draining hull
Starting engine in Spring, burning off the fogging oil
What protectant should I use to spray on the engine exterior and other metal parts inside the hull?
Note: Do not use WD-40 or any solvent based product. WD-40 is not effective for protecting metal.
Solvent based products can attack rubber parts, flexible hoses and wire insulation and over time can cause them to degrade. If you can, look for Low VOC or non-VOC products.
Never spray these products inside the engine. Use engine fogging oil to protect the engine internals.
Store with full fuel tank (with fuel stabilizer), ventilate hull interior
Storage with non-Ethanol gasoline preferred
Nose high draining, especially for Ficht fuel injected engines
