Yamaha 8hp 4-stroke advise........

.........please.

I have just bought a 2004 8hp 4-stroke ouboard along with a Yam300s SIB. Yipeeeeee......

Anyway, unfortunately the chap did not have the engine manual handy and can not get it to me until March. In the meantime I need some advise on flushing. I believe the yam has a fresh water flush point without having to start the engine ?

Where on the engine it is and how does one attach the hose ?

Cheers.........

If you are talking about the "Fresh Water Flushing System" described here

http://www.yamaha-motor-europe.com/p...t_overview.jsp

then I don't think its a "standard" feature (on the small engines?) I have a new (2005) 20HP 2 stroke and it doesn't have this feature.

You can download Mercury/Mariner manuals too.

http://www.marinepower.com/download/main?type=corp


Not sure about other manufacturers. It seems silly these days if you can't, they start life on the computer anyway!

Never noticed before - maybe it's fairly new - hopefully Suzuki and others will follow suit!!!
