    Yet another winterization thread...sorry. Is this the correct line for anti-freeze

    Just wanted to make sure I'm clamping the correct line. The red tube is coming off the flush line (garden hose). Is the line with the red X the one I want to clamp to prevent the anti-freeze from running out the back?

    And...

    When the machine is on the garden hose for flushing purposes, is it normal for very little to be coming out the side spout? I was only getting a few drops, 99.99% was just pouring out the back. It was at the bottom of the driveway, so it was on a very little incline.

    Thanks!

    from what i understand is start unit on water hose and flush for 10 min. the have a 5 gallon bucket with 3 gallons of rv antifreeze, 2 gallons water. start machine and funnel in the bucket down flush hose port. after about 3/4 way gone start fogging carbs, continue pouring(need two people). fog until motor dies or is chugging. shut off. then remove plugs squirt 2-3 seconds per hole. put plugs in. remove plugs, cycle over for a few turns, and done

    Thanks for all that.

    But my question is - is that hose the correct one to crimp so that anti-freeze doesn't just all pour out the back, instead of in the engine.

    The part of the hose that comes from the back of the boat is the supply (water comes from the pump). The other line goes into all of the engine and exhaust pipe jackets. You want the antifreeze to go to the engine.

    Yes, it is normal for just a small amount of to come out of the sides of the hull. Look at the size of the hose that you are supplying to vs the size of the inside diameter of the water supply hook up. You supply very little water under very little (house) pressure.
