3. Spray Quicksilver Corrosion Guard on external metal surfaces (except corrosion control anodes).
Drain and refill the gear case lubricant (refer to maintenance procedure).
POSITIONING OUTBOARD FOR STORAGE

If outboard is stored tilted up in freezing temperature, trapped cooling water or
rain water that may have entered the propeller exhaust outlet in the gear case
could freeze and cause damage to the outboard.
