This is my first post here.
I am the owner of a 2013 Evinrude Etec Icon 250 DE250PZABA.
I have my boat all season in the water and I have problems to flush my engine:
Thank you for your time.
Solved! Go to Solution.
That plug fitting is removed first and then the garden hose is screwed into the hole.
You may have misunderstood what you read elsewhere, the quick disconnect was designed for motors like yours. It CANNOT be used on the inline and 60° engine blocks due to their different plumbing.
You can leave the threaded piece of the quick-disconnect on the engine as it has a sliding valve piece that keeps from losing water pressure when not connected to the hose and the engine is running.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
