    Water box question

    If there was a drain in the bottom of the water box, could a flush be completed without running the motor?

    If there was a drain at the bottom of the waterbox youd sink.

    What I was getting at. If there was a bottom drain on the water box that was routed to a transom through hull fitting of 1/2 pipe tread. When you flush, you remove the fitting to rid the water from the waterbox. this way you could flush for extended periods o time without the motor running. Seadoo recommends 30 sec.
    Just a thought.

    I guess everyone miss-understood what I was getting at. Not to fill the hull with water, or to empty the water box. To do a GOOD 3 or 4 min flush, without running the motor and burning up the carbon seal. That's all.

    The water box would probably fill with water. Then the water would get into the exhaust manifold, then into the cylinders.

    There would be a drain in the bottom of the water box that would empty to the outside. Not into the hull. Just trying to see if there is a way to do a flush longer then 30 seconds. Guess this was a bad idea.

    On the same note, can't we just spray the carbon ring with water while we run it on the trailer?

    You can remove the clip and slide the metal hat forward on the shaft.
