When I bought my 96 MC190 in Feb 1997, I was told to change transmission fluid every 100 hours. It now has 575 hours. That is what I have done. No problems

Got the dealership to show me how to winterize my MC 190 in 1996. At $25.00 each time vs $400+ I have saved a lot of $$ in the last 18 years. Do the math!

The problem I see with doing winterization is don't you need to be insured? I so, how much is insurance? You may know your boat but you may not know the other persons boat as well as yours

Yes, I change my impeller in the spring. The issue was mainly about the cost of winterizing. Too me that is not part of winterizing. Last time I bought an one I paid 40 bucks plus shipping

I can winterize my 190 for about $25 bucks. Change oil in the spring or every 50 hrs. It's not hard.

May have a point. That is the way I was taught. Rather have extra protection as not. At least you have 6 months-for me of protection than none. Gunk makes anti rust you add to the RV antifreeze.

Caution! When you install the knock sensor, be careful not over tighten it. I hear if you apply too much pressure it will break.

Had a runabout 4 cyl. Piece of junk!!! A friend told me you need to get a good boat. Asked him what that was. He said a MC. Traided it in on a 87 MC 190. Bought another 190 in 96. LOVE it!!!
