    96 GTX fuel delivery

    Hello, I just replaced all the fuel lines as well as filters in the carbs on my 96 GTX. I have it all back together but am having trouble getting fuel to the carbs now. Obviously everything is dry with all new lines, carbs had to be removed so they are dry. I have cranked it till the battery went dead, recharged it and cranked again till it went dead. Any suggestions on getting the system primed would be appreciated.

    is your fuel selector switch set to 'on'?

    your main fuel filter (under the hood) should be filling up when you crank the ski over. are you sure everything is hooked up properly? make sure the o-ring on the fuel filter is not pinched allowing air into the system.

    you can always try pouring a bit of fuel into the cylinders to try and start it. this will pull fuel through the system.

    OK I'll recheck everything. How long should it take to prime it? i.e. How long should I have to crank it? Thanks

    It takes less than a minute if everything is right,do you have the pulse line hooked up ?? Line from cases to carbs,this operates the fuel pump.

    Well I don't know. Everything appears to hooked back up properly. I pulled the fuel line at the carbs and then cranked it and saw gas coming out, so I guess it's getting there. Also put a little in the spark plug holes and it fired up but only ran a couple of second so guess the gas isn't getting past the carbs for some reason. Back to the drawing board.

    Take off the return fuel line at the back of the carbs and pressuize the hose with air, only about 6 lbs. When fuel starts dripping/squirting out of the barb the carbs are primed.

    If the pulse hose is hooked up,I would bet you got a line wrong somewhere.

    It's always taken me longer to get a dry fuel system started without priming worx. Much longer than a minute. Even on a primed system that has sat about a month...it took 3-4, 3 second cranks, before the engine started.
