    Fuel & Oil tank venting, Two under the hood questions, '01 SLX

    Is this supposed to be plugged? Is this were the flush kit would go?

    What is this? Am I missing a hose? It looks like oil may be coming out of this piece.

    That's is where you would attach a flush kit. The other fitting is the oil tank vent.

    Oil tank vent. That is the normal configuration, it is a one way check valve that allows air INTO the oil tank (as oil gets consumed by the engine) but is not supposed to allow air or oil out.

    There are two more check valves on the fuel tank, one for air in (like the oil vent) and one for excess air pressure out of the fuel tank. The air out vent connects through a hose to a rubber hull fitting. Check all three vent check valves. If you want to be sure, just replace all three. Not too expensive, especially if you are ordering other parts at the same time.

    It is not uncommon for the oil tank fitting to ooze. Clean up the hull interior so you can more easily see what is what. Degreaser, hot water, scrubbing. I tilt the nose of the trailer up high while I clean to allow the water to drain out the back.

    Cover and seal the engine air intake with a plastic bag before you start spraying water around

    I found this while looking for part numbers from the Polaris website. Was this optional? I didn't see this on my ski.

    Optional fogging oil system, but I think it was standard on many of the 'International' models.

    Are all three check valves the same? I couldn't find the check valves for the fuel system in the diagrams on the Polaris website. Also, the check valve that I could find for the oil tank appears to be replaced with a version put into service in 2002.

    The check valves are not all the same. Two are vacuum release valves, the fuel tank vent is a 1-2 PSI release pressure.

    Should be on the fuel tank or fuel system diagrams

    I'll put this here so in the future if somebody is looking for this information it will be here.

    The vacuum checks for the gas tank and oil tank are the same, PN 7052118

    The relief check valve for the fuel tank is PN 7051015

    AND it looks like the 7052118 is no longer available...

    EDIT

    www.SpeedSuplies.com has them

    Wonder what the specs are for comparable check valves for Yamaha, Kawasaki or SeaDoo? I would expect release pressure and hose size would be the important parameters to match up.

    Edit: Perhaps BRP/Seadoo part 275500398 might work?
