Re: Run our 2012 Honda 9.9 hp outboard up out of the water?

With the Honda outboard the manual said the motor need not run to flush out the motor using the garden hose attachment. So I was wondering if the Honda would have a problem running the water coming from the garden hose instead of the water pump? Or is the water from the garden hose going to the water pump? When I just connect the garden hose and run the water to flush the motor out it comes out the hole fine. Now if we start it and do the same thing with the garden hose would this cause a problem? I am thinking not but am not sure. I would like to be sure as we can not just run it to the Honda outboard motor dealer here in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
Or am I making a big deal out of nothing like usual
