That's correct. I only ran the boat for a few minutes the first day, so maybe it didn't have time to turn into a milkshake. That is why I want to check the water separator.

By the way, It is a 92 ProStar 190 with the 351 Ford at 280 HP. We had the boat from 95-2010 while we lived in AZ. Never had to winterized before. Boy I miss AZ!

I don't want to hijack this post, but it sounds very similar to my situation this year.

I'm in the Richmond, VA area and winterized my boat, pulling manifold plugs and opening the two t-plug...

After pulling someone, it would idle fine. I think it is gummed up a bit from sitting too long and not having been "winterized" at the time. I looked in the carb when it was running and nothing...

Got out this Saturday and followed the advice to let the boat idle a bit before shutting off. Seemed to work and I only saw the temp gauge go up to about 180 once I turned it back on, and it went...

I replaced the impeller for our hopeful lake trip this Saturday. The old impeller vanes were a bit warped, but not bad.

I got a 1/2" ratchet and was able to take the plug off the manifold after work today. Again about a quart of water or more, along with some old impeller bits, along with some small rust pieces. The...

Basic thermodynamics. I haven't really put two and two together, but if it is actually heating up that much that fast, there is some serious heat buildup somewhere else.

Not that flexible. They would bend when I would push them with my fingers, but not flex by the weight of the impeller itself. I was trying to explain that they weren't dry rotted and cracking if...

I believe I replaced the impeller 2 years ago when I used it in WV. I pulled it out last week and the vanes were flexible and looked good. I even had a new impeller in hand anticipating having to...

Not really a thread jack. Same issue, just different generation of boat and motor controls. Either way, it is all good information.

That is exactly what is happening to me. It may be because my boat is a 1992, but it still starts when the gauge is pegged up at 220. It cools down probably within 10-15 seconds.

I don't think...

The normal temperature it runs at is 160. Is that hot for having a 142 thermostat in the boat? If I remember right it has always run at that temperature, but I may be wrong.

I know it is a 142 thermostat because I checked the old one and new one before I installed it.

When idling and running the temp indicator is straight up. Not sure of the temp but that is what it...

The plug (looks more like a flat cap) that popped out was on the side of the exhaust manifold. There...

I checked some other threads for winterizing and was able to see some pics of the plugs on the manifolds. I assume the ones on the block look similar in configuration.
