So, unfortunately we haven't been able to use our 50 hp outboard Johnson from the 70s the past month. We plan to use it this weekend. However, being in Michigan, we've already had a few nights with frost. Will this harm the engine that it's been so cold at night without being winterized yet?
It's a cold start to begin with, but do we need to do anything special to start it tomorrow? We're going to really let it warm up once started for a while.
We store it with a tarp and in the upright position.
