Winterize it just like any other engine.

I may be a bit anal, but I tear mine down, blow out all the passages and replace both sides block and bowl gaskets every winter. Its cheap , easy insurance to avoid 1 of a thousand things that can cause a running problem next year.

On my Holley's, I pull the lower float bowl screws and drain all the bowls. This new fuel evaporates and leaves residue.

Good idea. I wish I had done that when I put mine away. I guess I am taking a trip to the marina.
