    Which hose to pinch off when towing?

    This is for an 03 GTX SC.

    Which hose to pinch off? I think it should be #3 or #1. Anyone can clue me in? TIA

    #3 and should have big red stripe on it! Put an in line shutoff valve and be done with it

    aklim, you may wanna double check that? I have an RXP 04 so I can't confirm on this one But I think it's #1 by just looking at the Microfish here's some picture of the tube with the red strip on it on a '04 RXP intercooled. Now, I look closely and compared and since you don't have an intercooler, by just looking at the pump set up #1 is the entry point of water to the manifold and #3 is the exit point of used water through the pump. I think where the #3 line is were you install your flushing port. double check it, but I am pretty sure that's how the rotation of water goes for cooling

    #1 is the inlet where you flush it so I am not sure if it is #1 or #3. Both look like it.

    looks to me like #1 goes to the manifold to begin the loop and #3 is the exit of the loop from the j-Pipe to end the loop therefore #1 is my answer

    ... on my 03 SC hose #3 is connected to the threaded flush tube on the back of the pump.

    ... hose #1 attaches to the pump and has water forced thru it via the pump I believe - it is not in the reverse flush cycle.

    ... hose #3 also runs on the floor of my hull up to the manifold - so fitting a shutoff valve to it will require a run of hose to bring it out to a convenient spot for a valve to be accessed.

    ... am planning to do this too but had not got to it - so just went and looked.

    ... just got my current mods all done and am buttoning her back up to test on the water this weekend!

    aklim, I am riding/testing tomorrow Friday the 14th with a good Brother of mine. We are testing a Supercharger. I think the ski is the same as yours. I'll take pictures and post it here.

    Here's a pic of our SC cooling path:



    ... so your hose #1 in your referenced diagram is our primary water outlet (along w/ the exhaust) - and also the reverse flush means from the pump (our 03 SC does NOT have hose "X"); and your hose #3 is the primary water inlet - which I think is the one we clamp for towing.

    ... or do both need to be clamped???

    IT's # 1 that you have to pinch off when you break down. #3 is a Bypass on the "J" pipe in reference with the link you provided. Try not to break down
