    Fuel Float - Polaris replacement float is part number is 2872860

    anybody got a picture of the fuel float for my 1996 SLX?

    I did the resistor by pass so it will run. I cannot find a part number for the float.

    I think I have two here somewhere that I bought from Casey ages ago. Now that I need them the search is on. Just want to verify I got the right part before I rip things apart.

    There's only 1 float I know of. Unless you have the old arm style. (92-early 95)

    You most likely have the right one.

    OK, that's what I got. Now I just got to find them. I have an entire corner of my cellar stacked with jet ski parts in various boxes....

    FYI:

    Someone posted about drying them out, and them working again.

    I had 1 that I've had a while that was bad. I just tested it last week looking for another known good 1 I have, and guess what???? They both floated!!!!

    I think they CAN be dried out over time and re-usable. So hang on to the old "sinker"
