Optimax owners please help.

We are having unusually good weather up here in the Western Isles, although the minch is quite choppy! When I returned today I lost my flush port screw. Do you think I could still use my Optimax 150 with out that screw?

Not really sure what you mean by flush port screw?

Is it the plastic cover half way up the leg for flushing without the engine running.

But not sure of the answer if this is the case.

NR.

NO. It is connected to the cooling system. If the screw isn't there all the cooling water will come out the wrong place.
