    Get some fuel stabil add the recomended amount to the fuel then flush for a cuple minutes then get the the left over water out. need to run some -50 rv antifreeze thru the flush system use a drill pump if you can wait to you see the pink coming out of the exaust with engine running then your good. Now you need too remove the fuel rail 3 bolts remove carefully so the injectors stay the in the rail, spray fog in each injector hole count to 3 place the fuel rail back in start donot rev repeat 3 times on the last time remove coil packs on 4 spark plugs so just cranking it over.

    Lots of threads on here--search.

    What I do is in this order for fresh water exclusively:
    Wash (I throw some CLR or a lime remover in the hot soapy water), polish and wax everything, COMPLETELY dry the hull (shop vac and then I place one of those square fans over engine fan for a few days to a week with hood cracked), give a good dose of Sta-Bil, fill the fuel tank, start the engine and blip the throttle from idle to around 4-5K for a maximum of 15 sec's or so each time (not on the hose--this cleans out the water in the system) about 4-5 times while cleaning/polishing/waxing (neighbors love this as do I), fog through the intake with fogging oil for 5 seconds, shut down motor and then pull the plugs and give them about three seconds in each cylinder mor fog oil and reinstall plugs, remove battery, fill battery with distilled water, place battery in office under desk and put a "float" type battery tender on battery for boss to ask "What's that stuff?"--I've got four under my desk , cover ski and wait until spring.
    Don't forget to get that prop pitched--that's what I need to do.

    And install the new DynoTune AF gauge She got me.

    And purchase/install the Riva Adjustable Nozzle.

    And purchase/install a new IC (suggestions? Don't want to hi-jack this thread).

    And...

    do we need to fog the intake or would that be bad for SC in some way?
