Hi,

Can someone tell the the best way to flush the engine out on my V225S please? It has a 5.7 Ilmor salt water series engine. I assume I turn the water on first before starting the engine so as not to damage the water pump.

Thanks

Not too familiar with the Ilmor, BUT yes, you do have to turn on the hose BEFORE starting the motor!

Yes, and turn off the motor before turning off the water.
