Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 1994 115 hp OMC Four Winns Fling turbojet winterizing problem

    Hi all-- new to the forum. Seems appropriate to post here for the engine on my 1994 Four Winns Fling, as everyone says it's a cross application of an Evinrude/ Johnson OB, converted to an IB with Four Winns to use in this boat..

    I winterized the boat 2 years ago. I thought I put the cooling hoses back on properly-- famous last words. Obviously I did not. I am now on vacation without my engine manual that I had originally followed to winterize. The motor overheated. I caught it in time--( I pray)-- I found that I left the main cooling hose OFF. This runs from the sand strainer and loops around to the left ( as I'm kneeling in the seats, bent over the engine compartment.) I originally did not hook this line up, and it was laying on the engine compt floor. I now hooked it up to the port on the engine block ( I'm pretty sure it goes here.

    Now I have a short ( 10-12" piece of hose that attaches to the bottom of the exhaust -- but unsure where the other end goes !!!!! ** I originally had this hose with one end on the lower exhaust and the other on the port on the engine block ( which is obviously wrong).

    I looked all over and felt around the engine best I can-- I cannot find any other port to hook this other end of this coolant hose up to.

    I looked all over the net for a diagram-- none found. Now is the time to get my boat in the water, get these cooling hoses hooked up right, and make sure my boat runs properly, as I have help to tow if needed ( like at the 1 st overheat).

    Can anyone help ?????????

      Looking at the motor from inside the boat. By bottom of exhaust are you referring to the hose coming off the lower end of the muffler? That hose connects directly below to the starboard side of the adaptor. Probably just conveniently located behind your fuel fill tubing.
