    Fuel filters / in tank

    After dumping 3 gallons of turpentine smelling orange fluid from fuel tank I found 5 in take filters & about 3 ft. of fuel line. One pair of filters is a straight brass w/ s.s. mesh pair on the left. the other pair on the right is brass w/s.s. mesh, there is a spring coiled around element & an internal one way check valve. can someone suggest which is the better filter. 1994 slt750

    Thanks Brian

    The ones on the left are the stock "clunks". I've never seen those ones on the right before.

    Then you had the check valve for the air vent in the tank as well.

    yes I did find another filter/vent in the tank along with about5-6 ft worth of deteriated fuel line. What I dont understand is the fuel tank removal is so easy on this boat. so why just keep replacing & leaving all the trash in the tank. I honestly dont think there was anything in the old fuel sys. that was operational or sufficient. Its no mystery why boat had lean cond/ hole in piston. its been a little costlier & more work than i estimated.But thats O.K.iM learning lots about fuel sys.carb rebuild & the fact that its a tripple cyl.w/3carbs any boat I had exprience with was 2 cyl single carb. I figure the labor & cost will pay off in long run hopefully bye summer boat wil have been completed & my family & i will have a solid ski that will run for quite a few years to come.
    Thanks all youve been very helpful Ive learned a lot here on the hulk

    ?

    Does anyone have an opinion on the right side filters ? For the main pick up does that one go about 3/4 the way down and reserve pick up goes to bottom? is that correct? then theres the fuel return port and then a vent line? my question is does this checkvalve connect in the tank to vent line out. There was not any check valve installed between tank &outlet under front hatch
    Am I orrect, that one needs to be inline?

    Your bottom pick is correct.

    The vent remains open unless you roll the ski. That will close the vent and prevent gas from leaking into the water.

    Thank you sir that was the info that I needed. I have a genuine polaris service manual but sometimes its unclear to me so I have to ask a bunch of trivial questions.. also I was curious about a pressure relief valve on the vent line out.?
    Thanks again Bud

    It does show the pressure relief valve as #9 in this pic.



    And just for the Hell of it.

    Do you know about the online Polaris Industries parts diagrams and parts usage cross-reference?
