  • 5 Gal jerry can or caravan roller water thingy
  • submersible 12V pump
  • length of hose & a few fittings
Detatch the 'marina flush' connector (assume your 150 has one), connect water supply to marina flush & Robert's your father's brother

Or another way for flushing the engine ,
just slip a large canvas bag such as a kit bag , sail bag or pvc sack enough for the prop & outboard leg to fit into then drop it down into the water , hold it up around the leg then fill with fresh water & run the engine just dont put it in drive or remove the prop ,, if you can get it so it catches the tell tale you wont have to top it up either .

So long as the water flows it will move the heat, so I dont think you need pressure. Just flow.

I think.

Plastic drum (water butt) on pontoon when full should give enough just need a pipe to flushing port from bottom of drum, an inline filter is a good idea

Also, dont forget your going to flush it on tickover - thats not going to take much cooling. Your only going to be doing it for a few mins anyway.
