diameter of raw water intake hose?
 
Anyone know the diameter of the raw water intake hose on a 99 star? I'm gonna rig up a valve to make winterizing easier and am trying 2 save a trip out to the boat. Thanks!!

I'm 90% sure its 1 1/4"

I had a mercruiser and two indmar's. All of those were 1 1/4. Seems to be pretty standard

Can these be installed anywhere on the raw water intake, not a certain distant from the impeller?

yes

Thank you!! My plan is to install a valve on the intake hose so I can run antifreeze into the motor without messing around with a fake a lake. I looked at the perko unit but I don't think it'll work because it says you have to have pressure for the valve to function properly (say, from a garden hose), and I won't have any pressure with a bucket of antifreeze.
