    780 Mods no water separator and primer instead of a choke

    O.K. having problems with the fuel system triple pump and there is no water separator.and has a primer instead of a choke.I only put in a gallon premix as the tank had been drained. Will the pump pick up a gallon of fuel?It will not prime

    The 780 came with the triple pump from the factory.

    Depending on how the ski is sitting,On a Trailer,angle,etc. Who knows? Why not put more in? Also check that the pulse line is hooked up and good.

    Pulse line good. I gave the fuel line line mouth to mouth and it put out fuel after the fuel cutoff switch prior to carbs so I think when it fires again it will stay running.thanks<johnnyrod

    So why would anyone take out the water separator out and run the lines direct?

    Some guys think it's one more fuel restriction.

    Local mechanic told me the screens inside the fuel tank (94 SL 650) were plenty good for filtering.

    Boy was he wrong. Carb filters were full of crap..... Thank god, there wasn't water present.

    40:1 for normal running and 32:1 for breaking in pistons.
