I have the flush kit installed on my spark. I think the easiest thing to do is get a screw in plug for the end of the flush kit. Easy to carry on board and easy to install if needed.

What are your thoughts?

What is that going to do. Blocking the flush hose doesn't keep water out of the pump and exaust.

That is where the exhaust gets the water.

I don't think that's correct. I keep my hose connected and up in the air . a tall tail of water shoots out of it when traveling at speed.

As I thought it appears that the flush is an outlet when engine is operating and you have clamp the inlet (hose forward on engine)

Why not just plug it at the inlet on the pump?

you need to get a 1" shark bite brass ball valve from home depot. cut the line exactly where the arrow is pointing and install the shutoff valve.
i use mine as a dinghy and tow at 30knots. i use a 75' tow line and it works great. this keeps water from filling the cylinder head.
