Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Do you know what all was done for the winterization?
How many cylinders had water in them?
Ok, how was the boat winterized?
Was the engine running during this?
Ok, currently, is there any water in the oil?
Ok, did you get the water out of the cylinders, and did you notice if it looked like antifreeze?
Great. See if you can get the engine to start to dry it out better. Only leave the water on for a few minutes before stating. Then after a brief run, remove the plugs and see if they look wet, and check the oil for any water.
I need to go out and get the kids. Ill be back on about 30 minutes.
Do not run the engine with out water. Turn the hose on, then start the engine. The water does not need to flow through the pump or the block before the engine fires. Allow the engine to idle for a few minutes, then shut off, and check the cylinders and the oil. I will come online around 10 AM tomorrow.
When the engine was installed, the port riser could have been removed to make the clearance needed to get it in. Sort of common on smaller engine bays.
