    The riva thermostat comes off the big water port on the head, then overboard

    I'm running the fizzle open loop and its working good, The routing is the same as the riva. The only problem I have is finding a way to flush it properly. The riva kit has a nice set up for flushing through the inter-cooler first, then the motor and exhaust next the same way the water comes in from the pump. I'm still trying to find the y fittings and hose kit to rig up the same set up.I'm also going to install a ball valve on the main line off of the pump so you can shut it off for towing. I always use salt-away. Right now I have to take off my strainer hose and hook it up to the hose with a clamp, pita.If anyone knows where to find those fittings chime in.

    I will send you another Y fitting and will also look into adding a dedicated flush fitting to the kit

    If your talking about the stock flush point, you will not get any flow through the engine by flushing fron there.

    If your talking about the thru hull fitting from the engine you wont get much flow through the engine as the thermo will stay closed due to cold water from hose hitting it before engine and you will not get any flow through the exhaust.

    You either have to remove the main feed and shove the garden hose down it or fit/make a similar setup to the riva kit.
