haffiman37 is on a distinguished road
I have in cases where people have wanted a 'quick' and easy way of fresh-water flushing engines just made a connection between the fresh-water pump (T-connector on hose from pump to galley-tap) and the inlet hose, BEFORE the pump. To flush the engine they just close the main valve, open the valve in fresh-water circuit, let the waterpump run and the engine gets flushed. Should even work in emergency for a shorter periode and at lower rpm if impeller fails.
