    Polaris Virage tx Carb - Cylinder head question

    Hi Consultants,

    I'm nearing the end of the road for my rebuild of my 01 Virage TC 1200 Carb model. Since it was disassembled when purchased, I could use some help/insight on the cylinder heads. I have the Heads lined towards the exhaust properly with etched lettering symbols. However the head rings have a "T" attached on one side. Any particular direction for that? And then there is the gaskets/O rings. I have scraped the bottom of the "Red" head cover off and lightly wire brushed them. I have pulled the o rings out of the spark plug crevice. So do I just put all the o rings in dry? Lubricate them with something?

    Also, Is there a right way to prime the gas lines? I used a syringe for marinating to prime the oil pump as much as possible including the main oil line In and I tried to top off all the individual lines before connecting. I have a 50/1 oil gas already in the tank after sucking all the old stuff out.

    Thanks

    Stevo

    P.S. threw gas/oil into cylinders and down carbs last night and it fired and ran for approx. 8 seconds!!

    you can fill the fuel water separator with premix that'll speed along the fill of the fuel lines,i use just some cheap bearing grease to coat the o-rings with that will keep them in place and make them slip over the domes easier as well.nothing specifc about the dome rings doesn't matter

    OK perfect. I will get some general grease and keep moving along.
