    Is this the right hose to insert tow valve in?

    Guys, whilst I've got the top deck off my 2012 RXT 260 aS I thought I'd install a towing shut off valve.


    Check out the diagram I attached and tell me if I am correct to splice it inline at this point (red circle).


    Also, anyone know the best type of valve to use which wont restrict the flow, ball etc?


    Thanks

    You dont need a tow valve. The water from the pump only circulates through the exhaust manifold and the IC. No chance of flooding the engine.

    I think it can still come through the exhaust into the engine

    Does the owners manual mention anything about towing ? The feed line off the pump is the one that needs pinching, that looks like the correct hose you circled..

    In the 05 manual it says the hose from the pump needs to be pinched when towing. If towing too fast the water will fill the exhaust system and water box until it flows into the cylinders through the exhaust manifold. The hose from the waterbox to the exit is higher than the exhaust manifold so it will fill the cylinders before draining out the exhaust outlet.

    if you tow long enough and fast enough you'll fill the exhaust system which can back fill the motor...

    Yes tornado that is the correct hose. Disregard post #2 due to a complete lack of knowledge.

    Please explain in your intimate wisdom how towing the ski is going to enter the exhaust and backfill into the engine.

    Water fills water box first then starts filling exhaust manifold then fills motor with water
