I was just winterizing my outboard. I just had a few questions. (This is my first outboard motor)
It's a brand-new Nissan 9.8 electric start.
I just completed the 10 hour break in period, and then another hour on top of that. It's now getting cold, so I've started winterizing.
I heard you shouldn't mix grease types. The grease on the motor seems to be whitish or perhaps yellowish. What type of grease do I put into the nipples?
As I drained the oil, I noticed that the oil had some sparkly flakes in it...they almost looked purple. There are a lot of 'markers' on the motor bolts - is that just flakes from a coloured bold inside the engine?
I cannot for the life of me find an oil filter. I'm assuming it doesn't have one?
I drained the fuel filter and the carb drain screw. I used extra stabilizer in the gas before I shut it down for the year. Is that good enough for the fuel system winterizing?
Do I spray 'fogging oil' directly into the two spark plug holes? How much?
I think that's all the questions for now! Thanks for the help!
