Re: repairing diesel engine on the dry

Stick a plastic bucket or bin in the cockpit. Run a hose from the bucket to the motor intake. Put a garden hose from a spigot to the bucket to keep the bucket full while running the motor. Any excess water from the garden hose will spill out and run out the cockpit drains.
