    question on the flushing... start engine, turn water on, turn water off, turn engine off - got that part but how much should I turn the water tap on? If engine is idling and I turn water tap on full, would that flood the engine? Thanks!

    Turn tap all the way on.......the flow is partly restricted by the size of the flush connector hole. As long as the motor is running, it will not 'flood'. Not enough flow will set the alarm off, then cut the motor.........not worth risking it.

    Re: Tips for those winterizing soon (yamaha)

    Has anybody used compressed air to blow out the water through the flush valve once the engine is flushed and shut down for good, ? I get about 120 psi out of my shop air and was wondering if used in short bursts, will it damage any internal parts?.

    Don't try it. You could blow some of the water that is left in the lines into your engine. That would be bad!
