Winterise your Outboard Engine

Winterising your outboard engine

Help your outboard engine survive the cold weather and next year you can enjoy a season of stress-free boating.

 

1. Fuel Conditioner...

Add Startron Petrol Additive to the fuel to stabilise the fuel and eliminate carbon build-up in the fuel delivery system and on exhaust components.

2. Flush the engine...

Run the engine up to operating temperature with cooling water supplied from Flush Muffs.
 

3. Protective Coating...

Spray in Starbrite Fogging Oil through the carburettors until the engine stops. This will leave a protective coating on the internal surfaces of the engine.

4. Engine Oil (4 strokes only)...

Change the engine oil (4-strokes only) using Quicksilver 4-Stroke Oil.

5. Spark Plugs

Remove the spark plugs and spray in Starbrite Fogging Oil  before replacing the plugs finger tight.

6. Waterproofing...

Spray the whole power head lightly with a water repellent oil such as WD40

7. Re-grease...

Clean off & re-grease the control linkages & grease points using Quicksilver 2-4-C Multi-Purpose Lubricant 

8. Gearbox...

Change the gearbox oil with Quicksilver Gear Lube.

9. Storage...

Store your engine vertically on an Outboard Trolley in a dry, well ventilated place ready for trouble free boating next spring!

Happy Boating!
