Thanks for the response.. It there a way around the 10 second rule? I dont have a manual for this thing so I have no idea where to hook a hose to it or anything. Seems to be in excellent shape however..
the engine has a place on the head near the back that says "wash" just bellow this there is a flat heat bolt no larger the 1\2 an inch, is this the inlet? so I just need an adapter that will fit into this thread?
You can view Yamaha Owners manuals at this webb site: My Yamaha Prompt - Owners Manual. I'm a new PWC owner but as I understand, as long as you are flushing the engine and water is running thru it, you can have the engine running longer.
TCARP : I'm new here so i'm just catching up on some of the posts. you didn't get a lot of answers.. And I too was wondering the same thing.. So I did a little research. What we've got here is just like an outboard motor.. It needs a supply of water for cooling. when you flush or run an outboard otu of the water you use one of those earmuffy things that clamps over the water intake ports. On our Yamaha's you can remove the water intake hose on the top front of the motor, it's about 3/8 " so you need some kind of adapter..and all you do is supply water. The motor will fire it out the exhast...
You can but the connections at an academy or jet ski place and it goes into the water hoses in the engine bay. If you run you ski in fresh water there really isn't a reason you will have to flush it out as that is why they don't sell it with the connection.
