Not on the Sea Pro. Its a 2 stroke. That fitting your talking about is only on the 4 stroke. You can get a flushing attachment for your engine but its a pain to use as you have to take the propeller off to use it. See attachment.

No no the adapter I had was for late 1980 early 1990 vintage engines. Way before 4-strokes were even being made.

What year is your Mercury? Do you have a picture of your lower unit?

Friend has (had) a similar problem with a small Tohatsu.

As described above, the best way appears to be to mess around with a small pair of standard muffs.....
