    Welcome to the Hulk.

    Yes it can be run in the shop. Either using the optional garden hose hook up, or installing the hose on the main (3/4") water intake hose coming off the jet.

    Only run it for no more than 2 mins like this or you will burn up the thru hull and pump seals. Now if you remove the drive shaft, you can run it as long as you like since you aren't hurting either of these.

    NOTE: start engine, turn on water. Shut off water and then engine in that order to prevent water intrusion into the engine.

    NOTE: running on the trailer does not simulate the engine in the water. It has no load on it, and will run fine normally. Once in the water, performance problems may appear.

    You can set up your account to recieve notifications if you wish. I believe it's just a matter of checking one of the boxes on your "settings" page. But almost all Q's are answered right away in the Polaris section, so check back daily.

    FYI: use the "advanced" search function to find any posts created by you.

    In addition to Xlint's recommendations, At the top of the thread click on "Thread Tools" and subscribe with instant notification via email.
