    sc off engine?? how long is ok

    if i remove my SC from the engine, how long can it stay off??
    is it exposing the oil to the atmosphere?
    will oil leak out?
    i might pull mine this weekend, but i might not put it back on for a few months... ski is in another state, and between powdercoat and rebuild by jerry and dead of winter i am not in a rush to visit the ski till spring...
    btw this is a 2003 gtx SC, i know the newer X SC's have a differrent shaft or something...

    Lextoy, I would just plug the hole with a shop cloth so nothing can crawl in there during the winter. You might also want to winterize engine if you haven't done that already... Ron

    Clear packing tape over the hole will allow now holes/crevicesfor bugs to get into. Clean shop wrag and tape.

    I actually have one of the blue rubber covers from the X SC on my throttle body right now. Starting to prep for piston swap, by removing some components.
