    Default 1997 Challenger 787 Winterizing

    This will be my first time winterizing the boat.
    The operators manual has you disconnecting 2 hoses.
    The service manual does not, you just use more hose clamps.
    Why is there a difference? Which way do the members here do it.
    Thanks

    I use the shop manual way for my boat. I clamp the hose that exits the rear of the boat. Then i use a small submersible pump to pump the antifreeze into the top flush connector.

    I have a link to the shop manual thats on my rapidshare account is it ok with the mods if I give the link..?

    Im actually doing this myself this year as well (1st timer)...

    What kind of fogging agent is used to spray into the pistons..?

    Do I really need to use the BRP stuff or is there something else ?

    Peace

    Any fogging oil will work, I use Mercury Marine, I got it cheap (free).

    There is nothing cheaper than "FREE"

    What else does your job supply you with?

    Any full synthetic 75/90 gear oil will work. I get mobil 1 for under 10 bucks. It uses about an ounce per pump cone. The BRP fogging oil is only 9 bucks and will last several seasons.
