    Question Engine flushing question

    Is it ok to run the engine using the hose flush connection that goes through the back of the engine cowling or should it only be ran on muffs when flushing.

    FWIW it's a 99 merc 2.5l 200hp

    Those flush attachments are designed to be flushed with the engine off. You cxan run it on the muffs if you want
