Fresh Water Flush

G'day,
I just wanted to share a fresh water flush kit I fitted to my 1996 PS 205 for running the engine at home on the trailer.

Cheers guys,
Yeah I am pretty pleased with it - I looked and looked for an off the shelf product with no luck so made my own.
Sold the first reproduction on eBay yesterday

Nice clean set up. What keeps the water from running out the bottom at the intake?

That was my first thought.

You have no way of keeping the water from running out the bottom of the raw water intake. No matter how good the suction is some water will be running out which leads this to be less then garden water flow rate.

Welcome to TT.
The air that gets sucked in will lose the prime also, and thus no cooling water. You need a shut-off between the intake and your valve.

I did a similar install on my X30 plus a strainer - boat came from the factory with a ball valve right where lake water enters the bilge. I assumed they all came with one. (In the attached link the valve is not visible down in the bottom of the bilge - it is hidden by the gas tank vent line). Close the valve after starting the engine.
