Re: Confused about which oil weight to use

Good advice about flushing with fresh water. If it's going to sit for a while, it might be a good idea to flush with glycol or regular anti freeze to further protect the water jackets in the block. Whenever you lay the boat up for a period of time it's also a very good idea to stuff a rag in the exhaust so air can't get into the valves through the exhaust pipe and cause corrosion.
