Primer Install Trouble
Bad weather today worked on ski most of day (no customers)
I removed choke plates & shafts for primer install.
What holds the brass inserts for primer into the carb?
They are very loose even with old shaft bushings.
Need expert imput.
PS maybe cheap nockoff primer kit

A photo would help tons BUT if the primer insert doesn't go in tight, it's the wrong one.
You can get the plugs and nozzles from guys like Ultimate Watercraft, Randy at watcon etc.
They should be a nice tight press fit.
Is you fitting tapered or have steps and you maybe just need to drive it in a little further? Also remember you don't want the plug or connectors to go into the carb far enough that you can see it sticking into the venturi.

I got mine from Randy and without the bushings they were a tad loose but red locktite fixed mine! Z

Fittings are not tapered, they aren't even snug with shaft bushings in.
Must be wrong ones. Should bushings be taken out?

Check and see which plugs/nozzles you get first then you can decide if you need the bushings. I've never needed then and I get my plugs/nozzles from Brian at Ultimate as he's just a drive away and I can match them to what I need.
Although I also have tons of them because they are easy to store, inexpensive and I like the color.

YAMABOND, put some on each fitting and push in place. Semi drying liquid gasket sealer works awesome.
