    Soooo...when flushing, water flow is backwards?

    I was just looking thru my manual at the water routing and it looks to me like the normal flow of water is up through the jugs from the exhaust, right?

    But when we use the hose fitting on the rail on the top of the jugs we are then pushing it the other way, right?

    I am planning to run my 96SLX rebuild out of the water for a bit doing a few warm ups and cool downs without having the pump assembly connected. So I was looking at the flow schematic in my, admittedly, horrible copy of the manual. I was wondering if it would be better to just connect the hose at the hose that comes from the pump, since I don't have that connected to anything yet anyway? That would make the flow just like on the water, right?

    Just seems like that would be better to me.

    Opinions? helpful hints? Abuse? Better pics illuminating something I can't see?

    Hit me!

    Correct. "On the hose" via water rail fitting is back flushing.

    If your going to run any extended length on the hose... and you've pulled your jetpump so you don't burn up any thru-hull seals... I'd pull the main supply hose coming through the hull... right-side of driveshaft... big black hose... off the connector at the hull there and clamp in a female garden hose fitting... then hook up your hose to this. It will flow water the normal way.

    As I'm sure you know... start the engine before you turn on the hose (and turn off hose before you turn off engine)... and I recommend not using full garden hose pressure (spigot wide open)... I half open my hose spigot and watch the amount of water coming out the water exit... and also gauge the exit water's temp too... to make sure I have adequate flow.

    Cheers!

    That worked awesome!

    I was able to keep the cylinder temps right where I wanted them for the 2 gallons worth of break in premix.

    Break in is best done with the engine under load. The rings need to be forced into the cylinder walls with the engine under load.
