    Got A Couple Parts Please Check, Need Some Insight Please

    SKI - 1996 Polaris 780 SLX

    1.) Oil bought here - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Polaris-Snow...-/201020787137

    2.) Fuel Select Valve bought here - https://www.watcon.com/fuel-system/f...select-valve-1

    3.) 1/4in ID x 25 foot marine grade hose bought here - http://www.boatersplus.com/shields-h...-368-0145.html

    SAE and USCG approved fuel hoses

    4.) Fuel pump rebuild kit bought here - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mikuni-Fuel-...-/150823591466

    I need help on where to get the proper clamps needed for the fuel lines and I need to get the rebuild carb kit eventually (going to go through WATCON)

    Thanks,

    Devin

    4) Watcon didn't have the fuel pump rebuild kit?

    McMaster-Carr sells the Oetiker hose clamps and the tool(s).
    I don't recall if I have posted the commonly used hose clamp sizes somewhere

    k447 Thanks for the response, I tried searching but came up with nothing on the clamps. I have no problem using hose clamps with the very sturdy marine hoses since I think you said those are more stiffer and so hose clamps could be used. As for the fuel pump kit, I purchased it on ebay before finding that fuel select valve on the Watcon website. I actually only paid 20$ shipped of that rebuild kit. I will be going through watcon for the carbs however, do you suggest using a little carb cleaner on my first run out?

    I have successfully used the OEM gear clamps on the standard rubber fuel hose. What exactly do you mean "suggest using a little carb cleaner on my first run"? The carbs should be completely disassembled and cleaned with compressed air and carb cleaner prior to installing the rebuild kits.... Remember to use the existing springs in your carbs, not the ones in the kit. The springs in the kit are for 650 and 750 motors.
