    Never start the engine if the lower unit is not in the water. It will destroy the impeller/water pump if not lubricated/cooled by water.

      Hey David – that’s true, for sure! When on land, always use earmuffs with the hose running or have the lower unit completely submerged in a barrel.

    How do I run all the gas out of my outboard. Heard that was not good for injectors. Don’t have disconnect on fuel line. Should I install one? Thanks

      Please note the tips started with “Carb Clogger”! Maybe I should have been more clear about it – this relates to carburated engines. You are correct, with EFI this step isn’t advisable.
