    Andy, I like to run the primer to all three carbs just in case there is a runaway situation and the engine starts reving I can add a little squirt of fuel to bring the RPM's back down. This is very useful for when the ski comes out of hibernation.
    The kit will have the block-off and nipples for the fuel supply and if you have a reserve line, that's what I would tap into so that you eliminate any air leaks to the carbs through the main line if the primer fails or a line falls off.

    To Clarify!The primer nozzles go inplace of the choke so the holes left at each side of the carb after you remove the choke plates and rods then the kit from Watcon will have plugs and nipples for the carbs! but talk to him personally and ask for the 3 carb set up! Z

    so,.. from the return line, i would create a Y connection? one from the carb return and to the primer??? because in manila they have primer available stock but for the single carb only, because it will spend me more when ordering abroad, i was just thinking if i would buy that one in manila and then find a way or can i fabricate a nipples for the carb??? and they i would fabricate also 1 line from the primer to three line tube for the each carb?? there is an exsisting nipple attached i think when removing the my flame arrestor...can i use that one?? i think it is for the oil supply line before...???thanx

    craft, can i have the stock low speed jet # on my skii??? thanx... im, using 75#

    Well in that case you could retain your choke and hook the primers up to the existing fittings in your manifold below your carbs #19 if it has them?
    not ideal but it should work

    You could always drill and tap the carb for 1/16 or 1/8 npt and install fittings from your local hardware store

    If you go to premix, you can use the oil injection fittings on the carbs as primer fittings? If you can get the primer plunger local then you can make your own kit for a triple?

    The pilot jet in a 95 is 72.5 and the main jet is 105.
