Do some searching. Lots of posts and threads already posted on reverse flushing needing the engine to be running, and the proper way to reverse flush.
Engine does need to be running, before the water starts, and water stops before the engine stops.
Check your water hose routing. What you think is the bilge pump exit is probably the engine cooling exit, or cooling water intake.
If you do not have both the thermostat and the pop-off pressure plunger in place in the thermostat housing, then you also need to clamp the water outlet hose while reverse flushing with the garden hose.
