Suzuki DF15 - telltale/ water flow

Hi All

Picked up a new (to me!) 2006 DF15 yesterday that is in great condition, well maintained etc.

Just wanted to better understand the coolant system and how/ where the water is circulated.

1 - After it's 'sucked up', where does it go and in what order?
2 - Does it only come out the tell tale after it's been through the block?
3 - Is there anywhere else it 'exits' from or does it all come out through the tell tale?
4 - Flushing attachment that can be screwed into the side of the engine - is there any advantage/ disadvantage to using this?

thanks

Stuart

Very helpful, thank you.

With regards to the flushing attachment that can be screwed into the side of the engine - is there any advantage/ disadvantage to using this?

I presume the engine can't be run using it...

Kind regards

Stuart
