    pro 785 Primer hoses

    I just now looking into the engine compartment on the latest 785 pro limited I bought, and I noticed that the 2 small hoses on the primer pull switch are broken off on both ends, their are 2 small hoses that come down and one looks like it is connected to a "T" branch next to one of the red top carbs that squirts into the top of the carbs, where does the other hose go??? what does it connect to? I also notice two push button switches in the stearing console any ideas?

    thanks,

    The one from the tee is your suction on the primer and the other one of course is your outlet .
    Pull the knob up and see which one sucks

    If it's a typical primer with one straight and one angled nipple, then the angled nipple will be suction.

    It should be teed into your return line somewhere between the carbs and tank. Some tee into the supply, but it can cause an extra restriction and the return line works, so that's where many will put it.

    Thanks, I will take a look tomorrow, I also see that one of the primer tubes was disconected in the center carb, and just the magneto and the pto carbs had the primer hose hooked to them, is that OK or should I do another Splice? to hook up the center carb?
