    So that I can make up a pipe prior to going to the boat (It is some way from me) do you know what the dia of the inlet pipe at the water pump would be ?. Searching the net cant seem to find this out

    Thanks
    I honestly cant remember. It was several years ago I bought the hose for it. I'm sure it's 25mm but dont curse me if I'm wrong and you dont have corroboration.

    Seems like the muffs option is not an option on a volvo
    I've used Muffs on my dpe drive without any issues.

    No need to touch a jubilee clip .
    This is what I see at dry stack operations.
    You would need a big container to cover a DP Drive and you would use a heck of a lot of Antifreeze me thinks
    Only ever look down on a person when you are bending over to help them up.

    That is interesting. I have ordered a pair with straight edges and a flexible inlet to see if I can get them on the drive as I would prefer this method

    Look up under the the casing below the water in take grills and you will see another small inlet that needs closing prior to start up otherwise this will draw air and no suction

    I did the same but they simply wouldn’t work - just couldn’t get the engine to pull the anti-freeze through so ended up using the pipe to the intake on the raw water pump and bucket method.

    i have permanently tied my muffs together on the forward edge and pull them aft with bit of temporary string, wooden bung in the bottom, takes seconds to tie it on when set up.
    add hose pressure, no problem rinsing the system at all.

    putting AF in, why not just take the lid off the water strainer and poor it in direct with the KAD running ?
    only for min or so, not going to overheat, or will it all splat out ?!
