Hi Alexandre:
Yes I believe that is true about the
engine possibly overheating if it ran very long at all but
usually it isn't running that long.  What I do is fill
the sea-chest to top with fresh water then have my wife
start the given engine and immediately turn on the full
force of the water.  Usually within about 15 seconds the
water level will fall to the level of the outlet of the sea
chest to the engines and we then shut down the engine.  I
repeat this three or four times for each engine.  A bit of
wear and tear on the starting of the engine but I don't
dare allow it to run without a full stream of water filling
the engine sea water pump.  I am guessing that as long as
some water is traversing the engine impellers they are
lubricated and ok but I am not sure so I have taken to the
run/shut down routine.
I can tell you that if the water
level falls too low in the sea-chest while flushing the
Calpeda pump it becomes very noisy and starts to squeal.
 Therefore I do the same there with starting and stopping
the AC a few times as soon as the flush water can't keep
up.
