    What Hose Do I pinch closed before being towed?

    I was looking for the thread on this topic but could not find it.

    I have 2006 Sea Doo Sportster 155 HP 4-Tec and wanted to make sure what hose needs to be pinched off before I am towed in if I ever have a problem on the water

    Is it the hose that runs into the bottom of my manifold from the rear of the hull?

    Thanks for any info or pics of the correct location

    My repair manual says the hose is marked red also but no hoses have any red markings on them. Does anybody have a pic of the correct hose to pinch before being towed? Thanks for any info...

    follow the hose from the beack if it leads you to the intercooler thats the one you block off cause that is the one that gets the fresh water

    He's got no intercooler! Sorry, don't know the configuration of the non-SCIC enough to say, but it would be the only 3/4" hose coming from your pump area. Without an IC, maybe it goes straight into the exhaust?

    ok looks like it's the 3/4" hose that runs directly into the bottom of my exhaust manifold.

    Thanks for the info...
