    The Y on My ski is installed quite far back. With the stock exhaust in, I wouldn't be able to reach the valve if it was installed between the transom and the Y.

    It's grease that's not under pressure so shouldn't be a problem. You can put Teflon tape or thread sealant on it too to be sure.

    If you have a tap and die set, just put the metric 6mm die on that alemite fitting that you bought... It's a bit tight but it's a very close thread so will work.

    You can rethread that Alemite fitting to metric. That's what I did.

    Logically that rating is for a closed valve. Probably not going to see that level of pressure when flushing or towing. When the ski is under way and hopefully the valve is open there should be close...

    Maybe that plastic one is the way to go... Cheap enough to replace once a year.

    Easier to scrape the silicone off at eye level. Haha. 461716

    So it turns out that brass 5/8 barb is the same size as plastic 1/2 barb. So a simple 1/2 barb to barb shut off used in lawn sprinkler lines will work... I think I will extend the hose coming in...

    Transom mod was easy to do with the drill press... Would have been a lot harder with a hand drill.

    Took about an hour with plenty of beer breaks.

    thanks for the suggestion.
