    Where do you get the rubber caps for blocking the fuel lines on the carbs?

    I have rubber caps that go over the extra fuel lines on the carbs. I can't find these anywhere. Is this a common part or homemade?

    Try Napa, I'm not familiar with the carbs on your ski, but I would imagaine you might be referring to vacuum ports. Napa and other auto parts stores carry vacuum caps in assorted sizes.

    Fuel lines are capped on one side of carb because I have a tee in the fuel line feeding the carbs instead of daisy chaining them together.

    I see, well as already mentioned you'll need fuel grade hose, which is readily available at Napa and the like, then I would insert a solid metallic object in one end and secure it with a high pressure fuel injection hose clamp (they work better than regular clamps because they don't cut into the hose), they have a particular name which escapes me at 3am with insomnia, however the Napa counter guy should know what you are talking about.

    Depending on the hose size you could use something like a brake shoe parking brake cable pin which come in different sizes. Again, I would just tell the counter guy what you are trying to accomplish, they should be able to help you. I'm not trying to promote Napa, but they usually have somewhat knowledgeable counter people from my experience as opposed to an Autozone type store.
