Proceed as follows for adding antifreeze solution in the engine:
Install a hose pincher to engine drain
hose near the PTO flywheel guard.

1. Engine drain hose
2. Hose pincher
Disconnect engine water outlet hose
from cylinder head.
F06E05Y
Insert a funnel into the hose and pour
about 1 liter (1 quart) of antifreeze solution mixed with water.
-
Always use antifreeze specially
formulated for aluminum engines.
Remove temporary hose and reconnect engine water outlet hose to cylinder head.
Remove hose pincher from engine
drain hose.
NOTE: Most of the antifreeze will
drain out when removing the hose
pincher. Use a container to recover it.
DISPOSE OF ANTIFREEZE AS PER
YOUR LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
NOTE: Although antifreeze will mainly
drain out, the antifreeze has mixed
with the water that was possibly
trapped in the cylinder water jackets
and thus preventing freezing problems.
NOTE: At pre-season preparation,
drain the remaining antifreeze from
cooling system prior using the watercraft.

1. Engine water outlet hose
Temporary install a short piece of hose
to engine water outlet at cylinder
head.
