    97 SPX Cooling Hose Routing w/Pics?

    Can you guys look at these pics and tell me if I have the hoses routed properly. I'm 95% sure and it looks this way in the manual, but.....?

    Also, what about that hose adapter? I'ts been on that hose since I got the ski but the manual doesn't designate an adapter that I know of but it just goes against common sense to me. Why would it be on the outlet hose going to the exhaust? Shouldn't it be on the inlet side where water normally comes in from the pump? Then when using the hose, pinch the hose behind to force the water thru the motor, correct?

    I mean, it could be reverse and possibly still cool the motor but I'm not sure.

    Please set me straight here - Thanks!

    No need to pinch anything?? It reverse the flow of water for proper flushing . Just be sure engine is on prior to hose on ..and hose off before engine off. It's a standard Seadoo flush fitting .. Nothing special

    Yes but if I don't pinch off the hose leading to the exhaust, most of the water from the hose will exit rather than flowing thru the motor, would it not?

    Sever different ski's owners manuals tell me to pinch off the hose behind the T for just that reason.

    No no no . You don't need to pinch anything off for flushing . The only time you pinch a hose is for towing a ski .. I've never seen anything in an OEM manual that required pinching for flushing ??????

    Yep, no need to pinch on a pressurized water supply there's plenty of volume to flush everything out and the water box valve still gets flushed right along with everything else.

    OP you do want to pinch that area when your winterizing with antifreeze so as to only use a few quarts to do the job.

    I thought you would get a kick out of that. I knew I had seen it in a manual. I'm pretty sure I saw it in another manual from another ski I owned as well. Plus there's allot of posts in forums instructing to do this.
