Tohatsu 9.8 flushing

Hi All
Last thread was years old on this.
What's the flavour of the month?

Using a hose - engine off
Hose and tickover

same for muffs

If you use a bin, do you let it let some of the water out so that it ends up with all clean water? Otherwise like washing in a bath to me. Crap is still there.

Cheers

In a bin best IMO for a good clean you can add salt away in there too, my Suzuki has a flush port for a quick rinse

I prefer and use a bin. In truth you are massively reducing the salt concentration flushing in a bin so no need to change the water for a last clean flush.

Throughout the season I have tended to use a hose on the flushing port on my Mercury efi whenever I've got home. The last flush of the season and monthly throughout last winter I used a "bin" full of clean fresh water. I differed from Jeff as I did run the OB in gear, just on tick over, as I feel running oil through the gears will do more good than harm.
