    I know its early to be thinking about this, but I did a search on winterizing your equipment, and alot of you said you put stabil in the tank, run for few minutes, then shut off fuel flow, and let it run out of gas, how do you shut off the fuel flow????? Also how to you stop the piston "dead center"?

    Usually there is a fuel shutoff valve on larger engines. Once the engine dies, take out the plug, look into the hole and pull the starter until you see the piston.

    If you drain the fuel tanks and run motor dry, no need for stabilizer.

    Top dead center. As described remove plug. Look inside. Top dead center is the piston all the way out, meaning closest to the plug. Dip the plug in oil and put it back.
