E-Tec 175 flushing adapter

Afternoon All,
Can anyone help me with a part number and UK supplier for the screw-in flushing adapter suitable for a 175 E-Tec?

A search has thrown up some old threads on home-made Hoselock things, a brass thingie from Walmart in the US but nothing recently nor a part number for this size engine. Also some caveats on different engine sizes....

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the reply Mat.

The one you link too seems to be sealed though and other threads talk about the need to drill it out!

Is there not a proper unit for the V6 175Hp E-Tec available from BRP/Evinrude?

I did email a local BRP-Dealer but got no response :-(

Hi David
I have one like the one Mat shows ,,, for my mercury. It replaces the blanking plug and stays in permanently. It is a one way shuttle valve that opens with the water pressure when connected by a hoselock. It closes when at sea due the pressure in the waterways
They shouldn't be used with the engine running (though on an optimax they can though I do not - don't like the idea of water flowing in the opposite direction to the pump )
It will work if you do have a blanked inlet on an e-tec
