Default Re: Engine storage

Hello and welcome to the forum: For winter storage the spark plug should be removed and oil put into the cylinder-then rotate crank a few times-then leave piston at top dead center-then spark plug back in........This is nessesary because when motor sits and is exposed to changing temperatures between very cold and warm,CONDENSATION WILL HAPPEN ON THE INSIDE. when spring comes it will be a little stuborn to start and will smoke for a short while.
