    Flush kit

    Thinking of homemade setup for flush kit for Polaris SLH and MSX 140. Commercial flush kits specify different kits for Direct Inject (FICHT) and standard carburetor setup. Are their any difference in the function of these two units such as flow restrictions between the two, etc. ??

    Flush assembly would be made up of hose nipple into water outlet manifold, short hose, then valve to tie to water hose.


    Thanks for any help on this subject.

    Hey GRID, WELCOME to the Green Hulk forums!!

    What are your craft years?
    Drop us a couple of pictures if you get the chance.

    Wether homemade or commercial, there are no restrictors in-line. Just be sure you don't turn the water on until the engine is running and turn the water off before shutting down the engine.

    It might just be cheaper to purchase the stuff commercialy by the time you gather everything you need. LOL Maybe check with Randy at Watcon or Tony at Atlantic Power Sports. Their numbers are stickied under the Polaris General section.

    Why must the engine be running before you turn water on? Won't the water just flush right through it?

    Gridcontrol: Also put a one way valve on your flush line. I find this easier that having too run back an fourth turning the hose on an off. If you want ill post a picture of my set up.

    Flush kit

    On Engine running during flushing; From my understanding you need the engine running to prevent flooding a cylinder with water…Water intrusion into cylinder could happen if piston stops just below exhaust port allowing a path between cylinder and exhaust, exhaust system being water cooled. Same as you need to pinch off the cooling line from your pump while towing the craft to prevent water intrusion into a cylinder per the Vendors manual.

    About check valve… Could you give me more details on use of a check valve. I was intending on using a manual valve with Quick disconnet so I could control water flow at manifold. This would also give me a good location of shut off water quickly in the event of Engine Quitting. Also please post Photo.


    Thanks / Grid
