    Default Cold weather returns. Re-winterization

    Ugh temps dropping back into 20’s next 4 nights, despite being inside my barn that seems to stay 10 deg warmer, I took the time to just pull the drain plugs and cross over hose.

    You will sleep better at night. I would be doing the same if I lived up north.

    Everytime I hear that song I think of Johnny Depp & Penelope Cruz

    I contemplated running a couple 75 watt incandescent light bulbs in the engine bay, or a small space heater.

    But said F’it and pulled the plugs, took me 20 min.

    Yep, headed to the lake to pull the plugs and winterize just for the piece of mind. That's my favorite part of how simple the raptor engine is, it's just 4 plugs. Probably going to jump in for a set just to say I did it.
