So if the boat runs off the hose without putting water in the bilge then move onto the ballast tanks/bags and fittings.
I checked water pumped from bilge. It's was basically lake temp.

Thinking my tanks are not leaking into boat.
But I have 2 unrelated problems,
Order new impellers today

They have since updated the flush kit to a newer style.

Crappy thing about the new style is you can't run anti freeze into your engine this route anymore because you need pressure to push it through the flush kit.

I have the new style flush kit....it does have to push that ball in which makes it a pain to run anti-freeze into engine (it wont "pull" the AF in like the old style used to), what I did is get a harbor freight pump, I prime pump with AF, put hose into my bucket of anti-freeze, turn on pump, start engine and the pump pushes the anti-freeze thru. Works like a charm

I had water leaking through one of the tow eyelets <when surfing and water hitting the transom at a stop>....... loosened nut and put some sealant on it and good to go. It took me an entire season to figure out where the water was coming from.

Best of luck for an easy fix larry.

Sorry for the thread Jack - But with the flush pro, I just remove the main intake hose from the sea strainer & pour antifreeze here while running the boat - 3 gallons is enough to get the job done including the heater, from a dry block that is!

I just found a very similar leak from the cable for my Lenco actuators (below water line). The cable that comes through the transom in the middle of the monting bracket broke free from the RTV they used to seal it and was leaking badly into the boat. After re-coating with fresh RTV no water at all in the boat.

What gpm pump are you using. The pump that I use for my 4000psi pressure washer wont make enough pressure to make this work. I wish that it would but I tried everything. I think you need close to 40-50psi of pressure.

Please send me a picture of the pump you are using.
