Although not using flushing muffs anymore, when they were required, noticed excessive water seeping out through both ears sides. A simple and reliable modification has been made to better the problem.
If two piece muffs are mounted the same way as one piece standard muffs, that is using a u shaped support bar, this modification can be applied to them too.
Slide & center muffs on leg, measure about 1 cm distance from back tail and mark both parallel supports, with epoxic resin make one small round ball like retainer on each middle mark, let dry. Will prevent lateral belt slippage.
Close both muffs with hand until both ears are touching, place a belt in middle of epoxy retainers and pull tight the farther that will go, wet muffs, slide on middle lower water intakes and open water pipe, less water seep out will be seen as before. If U shape bar is heavily opened do to prolonged use, on a press, press U end to narrow gap.
A water flushing adapter is currently being used on lower leg, still in the need of muffs to close both water intakes to better pressure going up tail/engine.
