    Default Joe: Why don't you run

    Joe:

    Why don't you run the generator until it is warm. Disconnect the water inlet hose and attach another hose from there to a 2-5 gallon bucket of pink antifreeze and run the engine while it sucks up 2-3 gallons of antifreeze. That will make sure it has a good dose of protection.

    Pull the plug wires and fog the engine while cranking it for 10 seconds.
    Fix minor things (replace wear items for preventative maintenance.) that cause major problems before they break.
