    help with 1996 polaris fuel tank.

    How do i install the hoses back? i forgot how it goes. 1 sucks 1 throws and 1 is air. i suck the holes on the tank and 1 threw gas out. so i out the 1 that sucks there. but what about the other 2? and what about the water separator? i forgot how it goes too.

    Also I'm scare i may put the line straight to carb. Does it has to go to the water separator first then to the carb? or just the 1 that sucks the gas straight to the carb and the 1 throwing straight to tank too? which ones do i put the the water separator? jesus why didnt i write it.

    Most of the answers you seek are in the tech section. I suggest you take a look around.


    The fuel sender has abbreviations for the fittings if you look close enough. VEN=vent RET=return MAIN=main RES=reserve. (which you don't have)

    thank you very much i got it working. You guys the best. Also i clean the carbs and everything but the jet-ski wont work properly. It idles perfect and runs at high speed perfect. but when idling if i press the gas handle fast it will just die. So i have to use the choke then press gas pedal fast. Is this normal or what can be the cause? I'm running out of ideas. I remove the shutoff valve, put new hoses and clean carbs. didn't rebuild it. It seems fine. Could it be fuel pump?

    Did you make sure your jets are clean? Just seems they have not been cleaned.

    if i put sea-foam in the fuel tank will it maybe clean the fuel system? i try Lucas but i hear thats to keep it clean not to clean it. That sea foam is the best on cleaning. So i will give it a try if not a have a jetski 1996 SLX 780 for sale.....

    Sea Foam will not fix your problems.

    No additive to the fuel tank will fix the problem, not even Lucas.
