    you stated in your frst post that you lost a cylinder do to a fuel problem. have you ever thought of putting on a 780 fuel pump on it. i heard that this should take care of your problem. i'll give you a great deal on one. right now they are 20% off retail. with this fuel pump you shouldn't need a primer.

    Well T has become quite the new Factory trained Polaris Guru I see.
    First off he didn't say he lost the cylinder due to fuel, just that it was low.
    He already has the high volume pump installed on his craft as a parts guy, you and your training should know that.

    Now why did the tech ask him to add a primer when the compression was low?? Easier starts. T as well as everybody else on this board knows when you start losing compression and the pulse starts getting a little weak the pump is not as affective at drawing the fuel up to the carbs.

    A little squirt from the primer and wala, you will get a faster start IF the primer kit is installed correctly.

    Of course T's joke is he thinks we throw the 780 high output pump on everything with a fuel problem. Too bad you didn't get on-line and participate in the debate, you may have learned something and seen another point of view.

    Al Don't be so hard on polarispartsman I think he is just having fun with this. When you think about it, It is pretty funny. I think Beerdarts 3" fuel line will help.

    Now as far as this statement comes from you...

    "Now why did the tech ask him to add a primer when the compression was low?? Easier starts. T as well as everybody else on this board knows when you start losing compression and the pulse starts getting a little weak the pump is not as affective at drawing the fuel up to the carbs."

    Depending on which cyl. the pulse line is on tells the diaphram in the pump how much movement to do. yes low compression on the cyl with the pulse line will make pump work in effectively. But if it is another cylinder this will have no affect on the pump. Thus the pump does a pump of fuel to the carbs.

    Sounds like if the unit had low compression on all the cylinders needs a new set of rings. I guess i have never had to put a primer kit on a stock boat but what do I know I'm just a fri cook. Ding Fries are done. Luv ya AL. Have a nice day.

    Well Shake man, he doesn't state which cylinder it is and assuming they are ALL low when he states one, isn't correct. Yes I'm guessing as to which cylinder it is BUT it's based on his Polaris trained mechanics advise. Maybe we'll have to call this one a draw?

    I guess i have never had to put a primer kit on a stock boat but what do I know I'm just a fri cook. Ding Fries are done. Luv ya AL. Have a nice day.
    I've never HAD to install a primer kit either, I have and I do because I want the improvement.

    Oh and you're not just any FRY cook, I hear you've actually won awards for your performance on the job.

    By the way, I thought it was pretty funny as well, I even called to say so.
