    Yes, crank them ALL the way up till the hyd pump groans, I make more money that.way. A new gimbal housing and a new drive after the U joints explode Now if you want to keep some of that money , lower the drive to flush and raise it to trailer.

    Unless your disconnecting the quick connect hoses at the block and probing the fitting your at risk for a cracked block because it did not drain at all

    too soon for a rusted water heater, The overflow reservoir though tells the story along with the coolant in the bilge. Is it full, or empty?

    small electric current in props

    you would not feel anything from prop to ground because the props are grounded. Being on a lift you may feel stray current from the lifts wiring

    Single Point Drain System Leak

    The pic I posted depicts a new copper item to replace the plastic water distribution valve/drain. I usually remove the 4 hose connection and insert a piece of copper in its place. I them remove the manifold drains and hose and replace them with the threaded elbow with the blue plug. The I remove the quick connect fitting in the block and replace them with the brass insert and blue plugs Having a lathe allow be to place a "indent" in the copper to hold the clamp on although I`ve never had a hose just come off a smooth piece either
