    has anyone used a ball valve?

    has anyone installed a ball valve in the hose that needs to be pinched off if your towing?

    was wondering if i should just cut the hose and install a ball vavle or just leave it alone and getv a pair of hose pinchers if i ever needed to be towed..

    was just wondering if anyone did this?

    I have one on mine. I have never needed to use it. It has been in there for a year now and showing no signs of deterioration

    breon we pinch the hose so water doesnt build up in the water box and run back into the motor?with the hose either pinched or putting a ball valve on it you dont get the flowing threw when bein towed..

    Same reason you dont turn the hose on before starting the engine when flushing. Towing at speed can pump water through the exhaust and cause it to backup into the motor.
