One of the risers in my Merc 7.4L 454 engine was over heating when I was flushing the out-drive of salt-water. Needless to say I was starting to get very concerned. As it turns out the problem was with my old out-drive flushing unit which only supplied water from one side (as is typical with most of these flushing units), which translated to only one of the risers being supplied with adequate cool water. Before taking drastic measures (deconstructing the cooling and exhaust systems to investigate), I switched to this Motor Flusher and things went back to normal. It saved me a lot of time, money and aggravation. The only issue was that the device was a little to wide so it didn't make a great seal on the out-drive and would move around when I turned up the water pressure on the hose--I bent the metal bracket by hand to make the squeeze tighter which solved the issue.

            Really need one of these if you are going to do your own outboard work. Slips right on and keeps water supplied for running your engine.
