I drain all the fuel out of the car and check the freeze point on the antifreeze.

The first things I do is back the valves off and drain the fuel.

Just a little crazy!!!!!!

I pull my battery out and put it on a trickle charger.

pull the threaded plugs on the side of the block even if your leaving it in your trailer that will remove all the water..

change the oil if your not rebuilding it in the winter and run it up to temp.

back off the valves so they are all closed, preventing rust.

pull the carb of and drain it, then I tape up my intake.

as for fuel in the cell I use my barrel pump and drain it.

when I stored mine outside under a tarp I pulled the brake pads also.

some people say to pull the plugs and spray in a fogger or oil etc on the cylinder walls, Ive never done that.
