MCX is multiport and I was told these should be done by removing the plugs and shooting oil in each cylinder.

I don't see how the MCX would be any different than the RTP. On my RTP I drain the block and manifolds then use marine specific -100 marine antifreeze from West Marine that has a corrosion inhibitor....

Now that makes sense to me and would be comfortable with that method. From what I read in Fonz's post he's not draining anything, just moving the source over. I'd be nervous with that. But again...

I'm not a fan of the method you used mostly because of the mixed results you seem to have gotten. IMO if you're getting clear water anywhere consider it not to be winterized. The only way I would...

Take a real close look at the trailer. That's a lot of rust by fresh water standards. Tube type trailers are know for rusting from the inside out even with very moderate salt water use and flushing....

Great Lake Skipper has a ton of those towers on their site but they are pricey. I've heard that they'll deal on multiple items if you call them. I'd still expect to pay close to $3K for a complete...

I'd start by looking at the cables and connectors from the battery back to the engine. On a boat that age you'll want to scrutinize the cables themselves along with all the connectors. Dirty or...

I was able to find a owner's manual from Reliable for the trailer running gear. The torque spec on the caps is only 25 - 30 lbs so they should come off easily. It would be nice if I could find a part...

That's what I figured. Where did you get your O ring from? I like the idea that I can get it from a hardware store. Also like the strap wrench idea.

That certainly looks like it. I'm going to pull the wheel off tomorrow (if it doesn't rain again) and see if I can figure out where it's leaking from. For $17 I'd be very temped to just get a new...

Thank you for the response. I have the aluminum caps so I was kind of surprised to see this leaking. I have a oil filter strap wrench that I can tomorrow. Beats spending $25 for a 2 3/8" socket that...
