    Garden hose hook up

    Hi! I can not find where to hook the garden hose to the 2003 Polaris MSX 140 4 stroke for a "dry crank" check on land. I did search garden hose but it doesn't say or show where to connect. I can not download a manual either. Thanks for all of your help and you website!

    Do you have a MSX 140 or a 4 stroke? You can't have both unless its a conversion ski.

    If it's a 4 stroke, 2004 MSX 150... the flush attachment is an add-on... didn't come on the stock ski. If one was added, it's located on the battery side of the oil tank... down deep... on the hose from the heat exchanger to the oil tank.

    Don't run more than 30-45 secs without water (cold engine).

    Cheers!

    Thanks for helping....I am told it is a 2003 Polaris MSX 140 HO Direct Injection (on side of pwc). It has a separate tank for gas and another for oil. Told it was a 4 stroke....how can I find out. Also, now told it needs a cylinder. New to jet skis and trying to help out. Thanks again for your help.

    *********new info****** Need a rebuild kit for the motor

    If there are two separate tanks it is a 140 which is a 2 stroke. If it needs a new cylinder you should try to find out what cooked it in the first place.
