    95 Polaris Sl- Shutoff valve to prevent engine from flooding while towing

    I would like to install a a shutoff valve to prevent water from flooding the engine in case a situation ever arises where I need to be towed in off the water. Alhough it appears straighforward are there any tips from those who have done this before I head over to the Home Depot?

    Make sure the valve is mounted or restrained so that it won't flop around or bang into anything when you are riding in rough water. You don't want to cause damage just from the valve being there.

    The plastic ball valves are lighter weight than metal, so good quality plastic (nylon?) ball valve would be my choice.
