Hey Guys well , been pretty crappy weather around here lately. So today is finally nice, picking some beer up on way home and going to do flush.

I read instruction with the the flushing kit and says to use full pressure for water but have seen many people say only to use half ? Little help can you explain ?

Thanks much for all your help, very grateful. I'm nervous since it is my first time

It depends on the water pressure at your house, are you on well or city water? If well I would go full on and if on city 1/2 - 3/4 on.

Thanks much Mike , so what happens if is on full pressure ? or anotehr way to put it what happens when there is too much pressure ?

Only thing I can think of is instead of impeller pulling it in, pressure is forcing it in which if there was a impellar problem then you wouldn't know until you are at the lake.

Is that all or can blow gaskets too ?

The issue is the impeller is designed to suck water and to much pressure can damage its vanes. IMO this is a low probability.

Thanks Mike was just curious.

FYI - flushing was successful tonight. Couldn't get it to full temp 175 was taking forever, was about 160 for 20-25 munutes revd the engine a little. Figured lots of water and not overeating engine sounded good could put my hands on houses were warm but not hot and same temp both sides, upper ones were cold so don't think I got thermostat open. Went in hear etc no problem

Well or city water tends to be colder that the water we boat in therefore the engine will run colder. Also the engine is not under load. If the gauge read 160 the t-stat was open, the exhaust components get a mix of water that has gone through the engine and fresh water from the t-stat house.

Glad you were successful.
