Hi Jean-Marc,

If you disconnect the flushing hose and start the motor up do you get any water out of it? What kinds of questions did you have for me?

Hi Jean-Marc,

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
When I disconnect the flushing hose and start the motor up no water comes out of it. This afternoon I went for a boat ride and when I came back I did the flushing and more water came out but still not as usual. My motor has only 500 hours and I never missed flushing it after every ride.Something is clogging the flushing system but what can it be?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
This morning I did the experience again of starting the motor and disconnecting the flushing hose and yes water comes out.

I did not get an answer and I want my money back.
