To winterize a Force outboard you should start the engine and remove the fuel line. Remove the air box and while the engine is running rev up the engine a bit and spray the fogging oil into the throat of each carberator when the engine is about to run out of fuel. keep spraying the fogging oil until you see thick smoke coming from the exhaust area. The exhaust comes out of the center of the prop. When you see the blue smoke then keep spraying and let off the throttle and choke the engine so it dies. Stabilize or get rid of your fuel in the fuel tank and you can let it sit like that for the winter. Leave the outboard in the down position so that any water will drain by gravity out of the prop. When you want to use it next spring just hook up fresh fuel, squeeze the fuel bulb and fire the engine up. It will smoke for a few seconds until that fogging oil burns out of there but it will be ready to run.

I have a maintainance manual for this engine (I have the same one) with pages of wiring diagrams. What specific system/area are you interested in, I could scan in the page(s) and email them to you.
