    This is not my lower unit but the same as mine.  Wondering if anybody knows if they make a flushing attachment for this type of water intake (circled) [​IMG]

    Looking at how those clip on flushes are fabricated, wouldn't be too hard to make something similar
    with a heat gun, pvc pipe and some pvc cement. Couple pieces of quarter inch neoprene for seals
    and some sprinkler/plumbing parts to finish it off. Anytide, you listening?

    I think I'm going to have to go with the home made idea. I think this one might be to big for my little 9.5

    [smiley=dankk2.gif] Thanks Brett, I'm gonna give up on the attachment idea and just build something like you built there.  I have been using a tub, but it was the filling/draining that was aggravating. Looks like what you came up with gets rid of that.  Thanks for linking me to your idea.
