MERCURY MARINE–Flush Kit for 4 to 15HP Outboards
Flush Kit for 4 to 15HP Outboards
Flush saltwater, silt and other contaminates from smaller Mercury outboards.
After running in saltwater or through silty water, it is good idea to flush the engine’s cooling system to remove debris and corrosive saltwater. This flushing kit is designed to work with 4hp- 15hp Mercury outboards to run freshwater through the cooling system at idle. A coated metal bracket holds a rubber cup to the side raw water intake opening which provides a garden hose connection for freshwater supply. Position the cup over the intake, turn the water on, and start the engine to flush the cooling system.
