    Flush Ports on the 300X when running

    Does water come out of the flush ports when you are driving the 300X? I am curios if i leave the hose connections in the ports when running the ski if I am restricting an important flow.

    Yes you are restricting them if they're not 100% open/free when riding.

    Two different answers from two well informed guys! My understanding is no water comes out of the flush ports during operations, correct?

    Thx

    Sure of course water comes out flush ports that's part of its open loop cooling system but it's working in reverse when you ride forward as opposed to flushing the ports after riding to flush out system..

    When you ride and the pump pressurizes the water hose line to the IC it cools the air in the IC then water exits that grey port in the rear, same with engine/SC waterline in the pump it pressurizes circulates the engine/exhaust and some water but not all water exits the black port in the rear...

    Long as your hose fittings ID is the same or larger then the flush/exit fitting nic is right you can leave them in. I dont like to give that kind of advice bc simple answer is if you have to ask id like to give advice that anyone who reads, it no matter their level of understanding how it all works, wont get themselves into trouble.....

    I understand. The fittings I use have an on/off valve (balll cock) that creates an opening that is smaller then the port ID. I will take them out when running.
    thx

    My brass home Depot Ones stay in as well. Even if you completely closed it off nothing would get hurt, you'd just get more water going through the exhaust side water jackets. Look at the flow diagram in the service manual..
