    Be advised the oil will start spilling out the back of the driveshaft hole. Get some spill rags under the engine.

    Make it quick... It's just your open loop. No need to go all bananas and run it on the hose for 10 minutes.

    FYI, if you normally flush your ski for long periods of time, you will eat up your pump bearings in a hurry. Food for thought.

    that is not so good.. maybe i can take out the water hose from the exhaust pipe... and then flush it without the engine on?

    UH, NO. Don't ever flush with the engine off.

    you could disconnect the j-pipe from the motor or the water box/mufler to make sure no water backs up into the motor through the exhaust and flush it without running the motor
