Correct flushing procedure
Can you define the correct way to flush?
Now I've heard numerous ways of doing this. Do you start engine first then turn water on, shut water off then shut down engine?
This info would be great. Thanks

How to flush
turn on motor
then turn on water
run 2 to 4 min
shut off water
then shut off motor
The idea is not to send water into the motor under pressure when
it has no way of getting rid of it.......
I also use a little bit of Joy/Dawn dishwasher detergent when I run
in salt water. People use SaltAway, but pricey and the dish stuff works great.

I added a small ball valve between the hose connection and the t, that way I keep the valve closed, turn on the water, start the engine, adjust the valve so water flow is about what it is at idle in the water. That way I can run the ski and get up to running temp, then shut the valve off, clean out the exhaust and then shut the ski off. No running back and forth, plus it is a nice safety in case the flushing cap comes loose.

Or better still, download and read the owners manual.

Before you connect your flushing attachment add a few drops of Joy.
I also use one of those brass cutoff valves at end of garden hose. On
the SeaDoo I put the adapter, then connect hose. Start motor, then
turn on cutoff valve. It's nice to see the bubbles coming out, I know
it's cleaning out the salt and any oils from cooling passages.

Aren't you supposed to pinch off the exit hose (aft of flush connecter) to make sure you have water flow thru the block?
