    95XP oil pump issues

    so last week i cleaned the carbs and added new fuel lines. at one point I dropped the carbs in the hull. no damage but i think that the oil supply line on the mag side got clipped. There is no damage to the pistons or case but I cant get the oil pump to pump oil up the new line that I installed. Any suggestions??

    You can run it with premix to make sure the oil pump is working.

    when I first changed the line I did for a bout two seconds when I realized that it wasnt pumping then quickly shut it down. I installed a clear line. I tried to pump it by just turning the motor by hand with out the plugs in and still nothing.
    I would like to go premix but its not an option. I have other family that borrow them sometimes and cant trust them to mix it correctly.

    Premix fuel in tank,start engine,move oil pump arm to full open & the oil will start to pump.

    Its not gonna do it by spinning the motor by hand.

    50-1 is fine for what your are doing,it may smoke a little more.

    Thanks for the help Dan, I got it working now. the only issue that i have now is a small air bubble at the barb that will not pass on the mag side. I tried pushing it through but it wont go...any ideas?
