    The jugs broke? could you explain that in more detail.. if they broke, something got super hot or the engine is loose in there.lol damm.. never heard of that one.. how did that happen? any idea? the pistons ,might be warped. Not sure what to tell ya on this one.

    it got extremely hott, will post some pictures later today, it over heated cause the flush cap came off and was letting all the water out, what do you think the best way to go on this is find a motor? or buy an SBT and sell it??

    Water exiting the reverse flush fitting should not cause an overheat. By the time the cooling water flow gets to the water manifold, it has gone through the engine and is on its way out the back of the hull.

    As far as I can see, water coming out the reverse flush fitting would simply flood the hull, without much effect on engine cooling.

    Unless the fitting that leaked was installed into the cooling water feed line from the jet pump, which is not the normal location for the Polaris flush kit installation.

    That seems to be the main reason for using an SBT motor...
