    Should I Use This Extra PLate To Lower Triple Pump

    I've been collecting parts since I bought my ski(thx to ebay & craigslist). I found this in my inventory after installing
    my triple pump on my engine. Should I use it? I've read on here where some say to lower the triple pump. See pics
    below and advise please.

    This is how I have it installed now.

    This is a possible addition if needed or is a better set up.

    That is the fuel pump mount plate from a 96 or so SLX. I would think as long as the pulse line is 12" or less, you shouldn't need to lower it any more. Just two more bolts to come loose, in my opinion......

    Keep an eye on that fuel tubing on the left side of the pump. Looks like it is starting to collapse due to the tight radius.....

    Thanks Chris. I noticed that line after I took the pic. I moved it down below the hose clamp on other line.
    Looks better now. Btw, I'm almost ready to drop the engine in the ski. Can I drop it in with the carbs and exhaust
    manifold attached? I've read that it's a real pain to bolt on the carbs after it's in the hull.

    Also, I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find the dimensions for my pickup, reserve and vent tubing. I need to replace those and don't know how long to make them.

    If you mean in the tank, the vent requires none. The Main should be about 2" above the bottom of the tank.

    For the Reserve pickup, measure from the top of the sender opening to the bottom of the tank then add 2". This will allow the clunk to "roll around" a bit inside the tank as the ski moves. This is how I configured mine and haven't had any issues.... Do you still have the clunks?

    I have new clunks. Did you reverse those? Shouldn't the reserve be longer than the main? Also, I'm working on the rest of the fuel vent lines. I removed the vent line from the tank. It has a check valve that is connected to the vent located at the seat latch. It's really hard to blow through. Is that normal? What pressure does that check valve operate at? Just want to make sure I don't need to replace it.

    Fuel tank pressure release venting check valve 7051015 should release at 1-2 PSI.

    The fuel tank vacuum relief check valve 7052118 should release with very modest pressure.

    The oil tank also has a vacuum relief check valve 7052118, but no pressure release.
