Default Engine Flush adapter on top of water strainers

Does anybody know where to find the engine flush adapter that replaces the lid to the top of your raw water strainers? Its made of bronze.

Thanks

You should be able to put any 1" NPT ball valve with a garden hose adapter in it. Or in one of the side ports if you have extra ones.

Some company makes a brass top that replaces the existing top on the sea strainer. I believe it has a quick connect. I just can't seem to find it.

You can use the quick connect like on a a bobkat you can get them from Grainger or McMaster Carr.

The product was called Thoroflush. I believe they are out of business. Any body have any laying around?
