1997 GSX Carb issue. Please Help!
Hey Guys. Yall helped me a while ago when I needed to change my fuel lines. I had just brought this thing to my local Sea-Doo dealership to have the carbs rebuilt. They assured me that the fuel lines were fine. I did not trust them so I changed them out after only about 1hr ride time on the machine. When I changed them the whole fuel system was rather clean. All was running great at the time. Now after about another 1hr ride time I started to notice a slight bog. Time to clean the carbs.
The screen in the MAG carb was a little dirty, but not too bad. The PTO screen was plugged pretty bad.
Cleaned them up good with carb cleaner..... Just like new, good to go.
My question here is, why was this gasket missing from the PTO carb? It was there in the MAG side. I have rode this thing for approx. 2hrs like this with no problems. Did the dealership forget to put it in? Will riding it like this hurt it? It hasn't as of yet.
My Wife expects to ride this thing for our anniversary VAC that starts in 2 days.
Any help / advice yall!!!!

NK!!!! Thanks for the answer to my question.....
I put it together and it is running OK on the trailer. I guess a water test will be my only answer.......
Unless AirborneXP stops by. Thanks again for your help in the past man.

OK. Now I'm pretty sure you're just making fun of a newb. According to parts websites, This gasket does not exist. The MAG side gets one but the PTO does not.
The gasket I'm talking about is #52 on this page.
Maybe this should be a little more clear in the Manual.

No one can confirm this for me?
Guess I'll just try it. Going to the lake for a week. Hope it works!

1 fuel pump feeds both carb's -so it's not needed in carb with no fuel pump
