Most of my experience has been a slow drain. I usually let drain overnight / drain line through the floor plug.

Refitted and ready to go .... just have to add water and impeller.... new plugs, impeller, riser gastkets, hoses, thermostat, thermostat housing refinished now silver, repainted risers and minfolds, tightened up steering by partially disassembling helm, fresh connections on Airguide Speedo's and pitots, and painted letters on manifold by hand - and yes I hugged her...

I bet you are sitting with as much anticipation for summer as I am at this point!
All looks great and shiny "under the hood" there. I can't wait to get mine all cleaned up. I am currently wishing I had it inside somewhere so I could get started on it now.

I've been slowly tinkering with the 88 Prostar I bought this summer. One of the things I need to do is replace the shaft log hose. A short visit to Harbor Freight provided me with a 1 1/4" impact socket.

I machined that down on a mill to .9" length so it would fit between the two halves of the coupler.

I found a piece of Al bar stock, drilled a hole through it and made a coupler wrench to keep the coupler from spinning.

Took a bit of fiddling, but I managed to get the shaft nut off. Now I just need to get the coupler off the shaft, pull the prop and deal with the shaft log hose.

Mine drains 100% in 5-10 minutes. Try opening your fill caps!
