    I have a 20HP Liquid Cooled Kawasaki Engine on my Encore Pro Line. (See Pic Below) Problem is, water isnt circulating! I know the pump is working (I put A bucket of cool water under the intake hose, and It sucked it all out) so I think its the radiator. Any suggestions of how to clean it out THROUGHLY?:confused:

    I don't see why you couldn't use an automotive radiator flush in it. I would certainly check with the owners manual first though.

    The other option is to completely remove the radiator and have it "dipped" at a radiator shop. Again check with the owners manual.

    I would also be looking for the cause of the clog. No sense getting it cleaned and then just throw it back together only to have it clog right beck up again.
