Zad - For peace of mind, you could loosen the hoses at the thermostat housing one at a time. Just crack them loose a little bit and if AF runs out your are good. If you don't see AF, just pull the hose off, pour in AF until it fills up the hose or comes out the exhaust.

I checked out the engine winterization by opening the garden hose connector that connects the riser drain hoses at the front of the motor and out came AF. Then I disconnected the large hose coming off the t-stat housing and it too had AF in it so I believe the t-stat stayed open when I switched to AF after draining the block and running the motor. Good to go until spring. Thanks for all your help.
