    my suggestion is drain the fluids, pull the motor and drive now, and work on them over the winter. this allows you to see what is wrong with your current motor, assess what you need, and to do all the maintenance to your drive in the comfort of your garage or basement.

    fuel system, I would simply drain and burn in the truck/car

      thing is i dont have the tools to pull engine. its going to have to get pulled and replaced by a shop when a new one is shipped in or diagnosed and fixed unfortunately. i have drive off in garage which just needs new fluid before winter.

      is there an easy way to drain the fuel out tank and past the anti syphon valve as needed. thing is boat had about 60 gallons in it before the incident and i dont have anywhere to put that much fuel.

        for $30 you can build a gantry to pull the motor.

        a shop will charge you about $3k
