    Question on Winterizing

    I was watching the CD from Honda. It says to run the motor while flushing. OK, I understand it. I had to do the same on my Sea-Poo. Then when the guy is putting the anti-freeze in the cooling system he connects the hose at the flush connection, holds the hose with a funnel in it above the top of the seat height and pour approx. 5 liters into the cooling system. I don't see him running the motor and he doesn't say to start the motor.
    Question is, Is it Ok to pour in the 5 liters without the motor running and it won't flow into the engine? Thanks, Steve

    Do not run the motor when adding antifreeze. The only time that the motor should be ran is when flushing on the hose.

    5 liters

    Oh one more (silly) question, What does 5 liters translate into gallons? West Marine sells the antifreeze in gallon size only, Thanks

    5 Liters is approx 1.32 Gallons or 1 and 1/3 gallons

    Antifreeze will not get into the motor if I pour it in with the motor off? I noticed the same thing and had the same question.... I poured about 1/2 gal in yesterday with the motor running but I did not have any more. When I pick some up on the way home today I should pour the rest in with the motor shut off???
