    How to clean/test coolant lines?

    Folks,1995 Waveblaster 1---Is there a way to flush out water jacket on engine to test and clean out just the engine block? Is it safe to run water in/out the block without engine running to remove any build up? Is the CPC hose fitting for flushing ski a stock fitting? Cant find a mate for it locally. (its one of those self locking connectors) Thanks

    No never ever do that. You can run it on the hose. Start the ski and then water, water off, ski off. It's pretty simple to run a ski on the hose and you get a good idea if everything is running okay and water is flowing out the back. May not run out the side jacket. Don't quote me on this, but I believe you can add a little dawn dish soap to clean things out or salt away has a hose adapter. Also you can you tube running a ski on the hose.

    Also the fitting makes life easier, but you can you use a screw on fitting, just make sure you fellow the right steps.

    Yes. Water circulates around the jacket but should never make it into the a tual cylinders. Pretty sure every yamaha adapter is the same. The store should have them.
