    Flushing/Plug

    Hey guys,

    I'm new on here and trying to finish fixing a SLT 780 that had a new top end done over the winter by a shop that didn't seem to finish correctly. I'm very familiar with snowmobile engines so I understand the motor itself. My question is with the flushing device. Whoever worked on the motor left the attachment for flushing connected to the motor. When I take this off, is there supposed to be some type of plug for the motor? Also, any other tips on breaking in the new top end? I know to run 50:1 premix and take it easy on the motor, it's just like breaking in a sled motor.

    Thanks.

    Welcome

    Often, the reverse flushing connection remains on the engine with a cap or automatic one-way connection valve, especially if it is the genuine Polaris version.

    What does yours look like?

    It seems to have some type of brass fitting on the engine, with a piece of rubber hose clamped to it and on the end of the rubber hose there was a fitting to connect a garden hose.

    Is there a cap or seal for the garden hose adapter?

    I don't have any actual pictures, I have the jet ski over at the lake, but I found a kit that looks somewhat like what they left attached. And I haven't been able to find any type of cap left with it, can I just make/use something to cap it off?

    You may be able to find a cap that will do the job.

    Or you can buy another flush kit, they are not expensive.

    Or you can buy a brass plug of the correct thread of fit into the water manifold bar.

    Those brass water bar plugs came stock, so you may be able to find one in the Classifieds on here.

    Hey sorry I've been busy with work. I took another look at it and its a CPC flush kit, with some type of quick disconnect. I don't think I'll have to remove the whole thing? I attached a picture, the second half of the device is disconnected in the picture.

    That looks like the standard reverse flush connector kit that Polaris sold.

    It is designed to remain on the engine, and automatically seals when the garden hose part is disconnected.

    If you have both pieces, then you have a working reverse flush connection.
