    intercooler in freezing conditions

    Please make sure if you live where its in the 20's a lot you push excess water out of cooler.....I didn't and saw it push water out and freeze at outlet.....lucky I think I'm okay and its holding 20psi on core and hoses. I had a leak at through the hull fitting in the rear lol had some water in hull end of last summer and that may have been a leak there. Just a suggestion someone may not be so lucky

    On mine it looks like water sits on outlet side of intercooler letting drain with node of ski up is not getting all the water out

    What is the best way to empty them rick? Shop vac? Air blower? My friends JD cooler broke because he didn't empty the water out and it froze. I will be installing my type14 soon so would like to know. Thanks

    Best way is to take a hose/ funnel or a pump and force antifreeze ( RV / Marine Type) in the Innercooler water exit line till it comes out the jet pump in the back while the ski is tilted up high on a trailer, Tommy Jordan

    I like the anti-freeze way, but if you dont have the time, I set my compressor at 20 psi and blow air through all the pissers and flush valve. It gets below zero here and Ive never had an issue.

    Ensure the anti freeze is pre mixed or mixed correctly....dont use neat as it freezes easy and will catch you out and ruin your cooler

    My post was not brand specific just a heads up not to use neat undiluted/neat or incorrectly mixed antifreeze
