    In your case I would just take a pic of oil filter and oil next to your hr meter.

      For those that used the non-pressurized method described on this thread ... is antifreeze supposed to come out around the drive shaft when you are filling those hoses?

      I know I have the right hoses. I watched the video as well. Antifreeze does end up coming out the exhaust. I'm just puzzled seeing antifreeze come out around the drive shaft.

      And I can confirm that you cannot use the flush port. It won't suck and gravity isn't enough pressure to open whatever valve is inline that opens when you run off of a garden hose.

          If you hook a water hose up to the flush port it will also come out the drive shaft.

          I put the answers next to your questions.

            Easy process.

              I tried using a standard submersible pump this year through the flush port and at first it didn't work, but when I closed the seacock and started the pump before the engine it finally did work.

                - Remove the boat from the water
                - Drain the engine according to the Ilmor Engine Owner's Manual included with the Owner's Manual Information Packet
                - Add one gallon of marine grade antifreeze to a five gallon bucket
                - Attach a garden hose to the flush valve adapter mounted to the transom. Place the other end of the hose in the bucket with the antifreeze
                - Start the engine and allow the engine to draw the antifreeze into the motor. DO NOT EXCEED 1100 engine RPM. Once all the antifreeze has been drawn out of the bucket and into the engine, turn the engine off to prevent loss of antifreeze or overheating


                That being said, I guess i'm going to attempt this method. I will report back my findings to help future 6000 GDI owners.
                Did this work for you in regard to sucking up the gallon with a hose via the flush valve? Thnxs!

                  For the GDI motors, they deleted the quick disconnect and there is a bolt on the front edge. I e-mailed Ilmor and that was their response.
