  • Slow Very Slow Draining Lower Unit

    F300 - Ambient air temp here is 65 degrees today figured I would drain it since it's not going back in the water this season.

    It's brutally slow. Anyone else experience this.

          Poke some plastic/weedeater twine into drain hole to open up any obstruction?
          Might be a blob of oily/greasy sludge in bottom.....or hopefully not a bearing part or a gear tooth!!!

            Have a beer, let it drain. I guess you could attach a Mity Vac to vent hole and put just a little pressure behind it. But that seems a little harried...

                    When I moved out of Virginia, all that sort of thing disappeared.

                    I had my shorts and tee shirt today. Smoked a nice Boston Butt for 11 hours....

                    Tough living...
