running my jet motor out of water question.

Postby AlanCoderre » Sat Jun 09, 2018 11:50 am

I have a 2000 merc 40 hp jet and I cannot fond anywhere I would hook a hose up to to run it out of the water. Is there a way that I can do this? I am new to jet motors and I do not want to hurt the boat. Thank you

Yes, there is a bolt you remove and put in a flushing device, Mercury makes one. The Mercury part # is 24789A 1

My boat is sitting in the water at the dock and it's raining out, but I found a dark picture of my motor. It's the bolt just above the grease hose.
