boatfix.com has them for $46.00
shop around, you might find cheaper.

Or, just pull the hose off from the inside at the transom assembly and stick a hose inside you intake hose.
you could put some fittings into the bottom of a 5 gallon pail and fill it with antifreeze.
I made a set similar to the perko
I wanted to make sure the antifreeze dropped back into the drive water jackets. The Perko is spring loaded to allow in the water flushing.
I just went to Home depot and peicd some pvc connectors together. Want to finish it off with a transom setup to hook up from the outside.
Spent less the 25 for twins

Bruce, I picked up the Merc piece the other day that goes over the lower p/u. Now all we need to do is goto Wally World and get a $5.00 regular flusher.

I was going to do just that, then I looked at it, and with the silent choice exhaust I figured to heck with it I'll just do it from the outside!! (it kinda tight back there!!)

This winter I plan on pulling the motors and while they are out I'll plumb a water outlet like what you guy's are talking about!!

Thanks!!

Default Hey Brian

For that kinda dough, might as well go for a mounted hose fitting somewhere in the engine compartment or through the transom. Sonic installs them factory on the swim platform. Could not be slicker.

Is there a valve that shuts to prevent water from flowing back to the drive?

Next time you're in the River, call me. I'd like to see this set up.
