    Flooded with fuel?

    Got everything back together the other night hit the primer button a couple times and she fired right up let it run a couple seconds and shut it down. Just wanted to make sure she would fire. Get home yesterday pulled it out into the driveway to start Lowells suggested break in and go to start and its flooded. Not just a little i had to remove the plugs and turn motor over to get it dried out and it didnt seem like it was getting better. Finally i took and pinched of the line coming from the primer button. Got it started and ran as Lowell suggested. Question is could the primer be siffining gas into the motor? Also last year i removed the little piece of plastic on the bottom of the fuel pick up tube could that be effecting it? Thanks

    sounds like you have leaking needle(s)/seat(s) on atleast 1 of your carbs

    have they just been rebuilt ?
    have they been sitting for a while ?

    did you rebuild them or just rejet ?
    did you clean/change the inlet filters ?
    did you blow everything out with compressed air to ensure no dirt is left behind ?

    Those carbs need to come back off and you need to check them 1 by 1 thoroughly...


    Please Refer to this as a guide http://www.hydrotoys.com/gpr/tuners/...orAssembly.pdf



    when it comes to carbs....you need to be Meticulous !

    I had them rebuilt 2 years ago by Carl Island racing. I just changed the jets. Would the needle if leaking allow fuel in when the ski is not running?

    yes, it can. It'll drip and cause a siphon effect......that needle should be seated [closed/down] when the ski is not running.

    check everything, spring arm, spring, needle/seat......clean everything well and blow with compressed air.

    a pop-off check should be done too.

    Would it be a good idea to install a fuel shutoff valve?

    Pull your carbs. Leaking needle and seat can hydrolock an engine, as well as all that fuel and fumes in the hull is a bad thing. This does happen.

    We had an ENTIRE crankcase fill up in an engine due to leaking needle/seat.

    You might want to check your hull, and verify it didn't fill up the hull.

    A shutoff valve is a good device, if you can keep it working. They tend to freeze up.

    Did you just replace the needle and seats with new ones or just clean them? I took the carbs back of last night and I am going to order new needles and seats. Thanks for the help
