Winterize the DF90a ~ 12-17/18-11

Been waiting on the lost package from UPS.... Under investigation...
Won't have an answer until mid next week ... And no gaurantee it will be found... That's nearly month since I ordered it on the 23rd of NOv.
( And it never was found_ I am out just under $200 of Zuke parts)

Decided to put together a few things I already had and finish th winterize this weekend--- good thing the weather has been good the last 3 weekends..( 40-50)

Although very cold this weekend but sunny

------------
43 on Sat
32 and very cold Sun (25 @ night n Am)
Wind light both dayS
----------------------------
Sat :
- ran it motor + fuel stabilize
- fogged motor and all cylinders
- greased all zerks
-

Sunday: very cold today-
- Ran around to get the proper tools for the Lower unit - some advice form West Marine Tech , Deep Creep on the bolt and nice screw driver set @ SEars did the trick...came off it the 1st shot.
-Took some time to drain and fill...so in the mean time I put the Christmas Lights on the house..

had an oops moment when I spilled the Tool case and alll the parts in to th boat Sat... cleaned em up Sunday...

Can't wait til spring - hopefully this winter stays mild.

update 12-21-11
Re-odered parts from a different Suzuki parts supplier/dealer in AL..IM Marine -- prices were cheaper.

Sun:
- changed lowr unit oil

Took a long long time for the gear oil to flow out... Put the Christmas lights up in between waiting

Took me 5x longer than usual - just getting used to this motor config . Big difference from the df70... More complex in some areas .. Spark Plugs are 5/8 and very very deep in the motor... Took me the longest amount of time just foggin each cylinder ... Took my time once I found the spark tool provided with the motor... Easy to use
