    Hypothetical Comparison - Cooling Systems-gctid390458

    On my Half closed cooling system, the manifold and risers saw salt water and the block saw E/G.

    On my now, Raw water cooled system, everything sees Salt water.

    Now, I've got a fresh water flush inlet that allows me to hook up the hose and run fresh water through the entire system. If I flush after each use, what could I expect in terms of life expectancy of engine, manifolds and risers?

    Note: my engine does not use the outdrive for intake, but rather a through hull fitting and seacock which can be closed to stop any sea water from entering the block while the hose is hooked up.

    Some people have your same setup and some use saltaway attached to the end of hose. i had a 14 year old 3.0 litre that i flushed after every use and replaced nothing. it just finally wore out.

      Maybe I'll try the salt away too.
