    Winterizing, a question about anti freeze

    I have been reading over this:
    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=76075
    Allot of great info but I do have one concern before I do the process.

    Step 2 refers to adding anti freeze with aluminum protection. I was going to order some Amsoil Antifreeze but I read in other parts of the forums that I may not need it? I have a 96 SL700, can anyone offer me winterizing advice for my specific ski? Thanks much!

    I just use the pink RV antifreeze from the auto parts store or wally world...not as harmful to the lakes in the spring time as the automotive stuff.

    Winterizing your Polaris

    Polaris did design their 2-stroke engines to be self draining of water (except the 1992-1993 Fuji with crank case cooling).

    One of the keys is to lift the nose of the trailer up as high as possible, at least for a minute or so. This ensures that water trapped in the cooling hoses and low spots has a chance to drain out the back.

    The Ficht fuel injected engines require the nose lift, to get the water out of the stator cover and EMM.

    I run the engine for a few seconds while tilted up high, and burp the throttle firmly a couple of times to push excess water out of the water box.
