    I dont know why you feel the need to make threads pertaining to skis you arent working on , but thanks none the less.

    The ski is only turning ~6000rpm, if i unplug the vacuum from the solenoid to the raves, it seems to rev a bit easier, but not very much if any....

    My low oil light is blinking because im pre mixing, do these skis retard timing or anything when you are low on oil to conserve the oil you have left?

    you can test the raves by taking the rave caps and spring off and riding it. low end will suck but you should get 6900. if you do, pull the pulse line off the side of the solenoid and start the motor. you should get pulses of air out that line, not vacum. if you get nothing or get both + and - pressure, then the check valve is bad. if you get just + pressure then your noid is probably bad.

    but without the rave you should see 6300 or so

    Im leaning towards a cracked vac line or something of the sort, because its still not building fuel pressure on its own enough to keep the carbs supplied with fuel ....... Im going to pull the carbs and replace all of the pulse lines on the carb and see what happens
