    That is where I have it on my GP1800, between the transom water feed and the plastic X/Y fitting.

    Space is tight down there so I shifted my X (Y for non-supercharged models) fitting forward in the hull.

    Do not use a metal ball valve. Too much weight which will bounce around against the hull in rough water riding.

    Compact irrigation type plastic ball valves work well. I like the Antelco brand ball valves. I have posted more info on Antelco valves elsewhere on GH.

    Tip: Check whether the flush hose is kinked down where it joins the Y (X) connector.

    I thought about doing this but figured it would restrict the flow and I would have done the basic cooling mod for nothing. maybe if I could find an oversized valve I would consider.
