Re: repairing diesel engine on the dry
Why not just stick a hose into the raw water intake?
Hooking up a hose with shore side water pressure directly to the raw water intake is asking for trouble. The worst case scenario is you end up with water back flooding your manifold and into your cylinders - not good.
It is best to let the water pump regulate the amount of water and pull it in from a bucket as already mentioned.
