How do you fog the horizonal mounted intake? ('01 LTR)

Hi guys,

I just bought the Clymer Indmar repair manual and it says I should drain the tank, mix 26 oz. of fogging oil in 2 gallons of gas and run that through the enging until it strats to smoke.......

is there an easier way?

Thanks,
beatle78

I would guess put that mixture in a near empty gas tank and after it starts smoking and you shut it off, go fill up the tank with fresh gas after adding the right amount of Sta-Bil or SeaFoam.
Or,
Spray the mixture into the intake with a garden sprayer or a solvent resistant pump sprayer!

thanks TMC1..... I'm wondering why they don't recommend spraying the fogging oil into the intake like other engines... i wonder what's different in the horizontal mounted intake that they suggest it.....

they don't say to do that on any other of their engines... hmmmm

I guess I don't mind doing it.... plus I've always used Marvery mystery oil [great stuff] insted of fogging fluid anyway.....

MMO is just as good as long as you get some type oil mixture into the intake where it gets to the valves/cylinder walls, no matter what style induction system you have. I have both MMO and Sta-Bil ready to put in my tank now before our last trip out.

Maybe enginenut can clarify, that sounds like a painful process. I've always taken off the spark arrestor and sprayed fogging mist into there.

Also 01 ltr.

That's what I would have preferred to do....spray and be done with it.... actually on mt '01 BU Carbed, I pour Marvery Mystry Oil in the carb for winterization ... you can't beat that stuff!!

I'm trying to figure out why Clymer says to do the tank thing on the front mounted intakes GRRRR....



what do they know, that I don't know?

Stabilize the fuel in the tank with Sta-bil and remove the flame arrestor and squirt the fogging oil through the throttle body. The method that Clymers recommends is most often done by mixing up a gasoline oil mixture in a 6 gallon outboard motor tank and attaching it to the inlet of the fuel pump. Unfortunately they are probably not aware that most MasterCraft boats have pump in tank. You have to be careful with the info in the Clymers as some of it is pretty generic and some of it is just plain wrong.
