    Unidentified hose

    While routing new fuel line I found a smaller (1/8") clear hose laying in the bottom of the ski near the pto. When I blew throught it air was coming out of the oil tank. I cant believe there would be a vent back that far. Is this an oil return line and if so where should I look for the port it goes on? I would guess it is somewhere on the intake manifold. I think there is a vent for the oil tank with a check valve in the MFD area.

    Can you post a pic? Sounds like it might be the Speedo tube for the pitot fitting under the PTO. What year and model? Cant explain why you would be blowing into the oil tank from that far back. Post a few pics if you can please.

    Yes, possibly battery vent also. Check that and speedo tube. It will connect under pto driveshaft area inside the hull.

    I believe it would be the battery vent. The hose runs to the front storage area and is hooked to what looks like a washer nozzle that is coverd the hood when it is closed. The speedo hose is hooked up. Thanks for the information. Also got my carbs bolted back on tonight. Really isnt all the bad if you work from the left side of the ski. Wish I would have thought to try that side during disassembly. Gave it a few cranks, watched the fuel fill the lines and hope to test it in a co-workers pond soon.
