Apparently both 2 and 4t yams don’t run well on muffs. My hpdi wouldn’t get s tell tail spout on muffs but worked fine in a tank.

Yam specialist says you need a head of water above the intake to ensure a good pick up. Cut down Ibc looks like a good idea

My Suzuki DF140 would not show water from the pee hole on muffs with the type that feeds water from both sides, but works fine on the type that only feeds one side. Go explain

I'm finding it very hard to understand why flushing on muffs is such an issue for the UK side of the pond. My local ramp will have at least 200 boats launching from its ramps daily now we are in school holidays, with almost every owner flushing from the 12 wash down bays. The next town to my south has far more boat launches daily where once again each boat flushes and washes from the provided facilities.

The only time I ever here of issues flushing is after someone has driven through mud or sand blocking the tel-tale outlet. Most outboards are large here and mostly set up as twins.

Why is the pressure so low in the UK, I don't remember ever having such poor water pressure in any of the areas I lived back there ( I moved around a fair amount ). How long would it take to put 20lt into a drum.

Personally I don't mind it now, I just flush without running it most times is flush port and then a trip to loch lomond (fresh water) couple times a year to give engine and trailer a good rinse off.
