    01 XPL fuel pump will not turn on...

    Ive searched the forums but cannot seem to find anyone with this problem in a 951 ski... my cousin and I just completed the install of a new engine into his 01 XPL. Now that we are ready to start it up, we are not getting fuel to the engine. The pump will not activate it seems. I checked all the fuses, and even ran power directly to the pump from the battery - nothing seemed to work.... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated im at a loss at this point... thanks

    Is this a 01 or a 03? A 03 has a electric fuel pump. The 01 that has carbs, works off the vacuum from the crankcase to activate the fuel pump diaphragm.

    Need some clarification to help you.

    It is an 01. There is a 2 wire pigtail off the pump under the seat that I powered up with no luck. Im guessing thats is why... because it works off the carbs. We were able to pump fuel to the filter and not past it. I read on the forums that this filter goes bad and does not allow fuel to the carbs. So we bypassed the filter. Unfortunately still no fuel to the carbs.

    Maybe the battery doesn't have enough juice?

    That's not a pump. It's the fuel level sending unit. The fuel is pumped through a pulse line off the engine block. I highly doubt you have a bad fuel pump. If you are having fuel delivery issues, you most likely still have the grey fuel lines and need an entire fuel system overhaul including cleaning or rebuilding carbs, fuel selector switch, new fuel lines, etc.

    Turn the fuel selector switch to On or Reserve and remove the front carb fuel return line that goes back to the tank. Blow through the hose for approx 20 seconds keeping it pressurized,fuel will come out of the return line barb fitting on the front carb.When it comes through without air the carbs have been primed ready to work.

    Check the pulse line to the case too. Make sure it's not cracked or un hooked.

    putting a 12 volt battery directly to the 2 pink wires popped the fuse on the board -- never do that even if the "fuel pump" isn't working.

    Thanks everyone, i apologize for the lack of knowledge regarding this system. I have never owned a ski with carburetors before. I will attempt to prime the fuel lines tonight and see if that helps.
