    Pumping AF for winterizing internal IC skis.

    I just winterized my ski, and for the first time used a bilge pump in a bucket of AF to flush the loop. My question is weather or not this method is OK for a internal IC ski?
    I flushed about 1/2 gallon of 100% through it "twice".

    A fail proof way is to blow all water out of ski. Then take a 5 gallon bucket filled with marine antifreeze and hook a small hose to hose connection. Let ski idle and pour the antifreeze in through a large funnel hooked to hose. Once antifreeze is poured in Shut ski off. Fog the ski really well and put a heavy layer of Wd40 on enginebay

    It won't suck it, it has to be pumped in.
