MaineSail did the point !! This is exactly why it must be mounted facing aft (just look to Volvo install instructions, gensets, etc). Others not flooding the waterlock were just lucky as their intake hoses/valves/siphon didn't reach to the limit. Same caused by insistant temptatives to crank your engine with an open raw intake. Guys, this is known since a long time, and surprises me too ...
