    Your thread is a little hard to understand.

    You're getting fuel/oil inside the pulse hose going to the fuel pump?

    And who told you to use alcohol to remove it?

    1. Where is your fuel pump mounted?

    2. Is there any fluid trapped behind the diaphragm of the fuel pump?

    3. You have a carb or oil adjustment problem if you have ANY fluid sitting inside the engine case.

    i have 2 cycle fuel coming out of the block threw the vacuum line in to the fuel pump i know thats not normall cause it runs just fine with out the fuel in that line then it does when the pto is flooded i think i have fixed it i re set pop off pressure it was all set to 15 psi and i drove it a few days then i checked it againwhen it was hard to start and the pto was 12 psi pop off so i stuck it up at 16-17 psi so when the motor is off it would not flood that pto cylinder and cause fuel to come out of my vacuum line so far it has worked going to put it in the lake today packing up stuff and headed that was now

    and i clicked on ATTACHMENTS and it does nothing so is there another way to add pictures? in case i get fed up and just want to sell this damn thing l ha ha ha ha

    damn...I love this place.

    The fuel isn't leaking into the motor from the carbs; you have pop-off pressure, so your needles are seating.
    The oil isn't leaking into the motor through the carbs/intake; they have check valves.

    What's left?

    Replace or repair the fuel pump, assuming that it's mounted higher than the pulse fitting on the motor.

    Fuel is leaking in through the pulse fitting, and it's collecting at the lowest point in the motor (PTO).

    750 should have 10-18 psi for pop off.

    If the ski vibrates really bad at idle, it can cause the needles to leak a bit. Which actually makes the ski run worse, and causes the needles to leak even more (catch 22)

    Or if the pop off is a bit low, and the fuel tank vents are clogged, it can force fuel past the carbs and directly into the engine.

    1. Have you ever rebuilt the carbs?

    2. Where is your fuel pump mounted?
