Someone at work said I can take the prop off of my motor and attach a garden hose so I can safely run my motor. Is this true?
Here is what you need
As you will notice there is a hose bib on the side ear of the muff. That is where the hose goes. Then take the muffs and place it on the lower end of your outboard. There will be little journals where the muff ( Water side of the muff to the journal) goes to. The U shape is for the muffs to wrap around your lower end. Turn on water, start your motor. You should see water coming out of the water outlet of your lower end. Hope this is of some help!
Or you could just get a 55 gallon barrel.
No reel need to remove the prop unless your going to replace it.
I'm going to guess that a motor that size will remain on the boat most of the time...right? I know mine did. Therefore I would use the earmuff. Dragging a hose to the boat is easyer than the other methods.
