Question Flushing Muffs for SSM

I am finally getting my boat delivered this weekend and i am trying to find the flushing muffs for my 300x with a sportsmaster drive. I called the local merc dealer and west marine and neither have it. Where should i go to next?

we went to our local lowes store and made one out of pvc and thin rubber hose. It worked very well. i will try and take a picture. Using a pvc nipple that screws onto your hose, and attach that piece to a union which has 3-4 small nipples and then attach the thin durable hose. Once you have fabricated that piece you can then insert each small hose into the lower unit. we found it created more water pressure then the units avail for sale by mercury.

Would like to see some pics of this set-up for Bravo XR Sportmaster Lower?

Yea,
I bought one and it doesn't work.
The connection to the water hose is 3 inches aft of the pickup slots in my sportmaster lower unit. Even with duct tape in won't put enough water into the motor. I burned out an impeller trying to use it.
