    winterizing SL 750

    We weren't able to get the ski running this fall so we towed it to the launch ramp and put it on the trailer. I want to store it where it will be below freezing. Are there any precautions I need to take before I put it away. The not starting problem will need to be addressed next spring
    Thanks Jeff

    Don't worry about it not starting, we'll get her running in the spring!

    Please make sure that you didn't get any water in the crankcase from towing it. It can happen if you don't pinch off the water intake line from the pump and you tow it too quickly.

    Take the spark plugs out, ground the wire ends, and crank it with the starter (if it will crank).

    If ANY water sprays out of the plug holes, then you have water in the engine, and that is not good. It must be removed pronto, and the engine dried out and fogged.
