    Hi,
    I just got a 95xp 720. Someone removed the chokes and linkage in the carbs so I want to install a primer kit for easier starts and to be able to kill motor in case of emergency. What's involved? Do I have to remove carbs? I see a lot of how to on this site but cant find much info on this.

    No you don't have to remove the carbs to install a primer kit. Especially since someone has already removed the choke plates and shafts, (they did remove the choke plate shafts too didn't they?) To install a primer kit all you need to do is install the plug and thru fitting on each carb right in the old choke shaft journals. (I always use a little SUper epoxy on them also). I generally mount the pump in the same place the old choke T handle used to be. Maybe Bryan will let me send him a pic to apend to this post. I use the black mount plates after removing old choke cable and drill them out with a 3/4" bit and mount the pump, looks factory when done except for the butterfly decal underneath it [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the info, they did remove the choke plate shafts and plugged the holes with some kind of epoxy. Sounds like they did me a favor [img]smile.gif[/img]

    A favor if you can remove that epoxy easily [img]smile.gif[/img] (be sure not to drop any chips of that down the carbs! Stuff a rag in the throat while digging it out, then use a shop vac to get any small pieces before removing the rag!) I have done complete installs with the carbs in place, and had to tear one completely down when I dropped one of the $%^# choke plate screws down the carb! You can bet I am super carefull not to do that again!
    Also the primer kit will come with instructions about the connection of the tubing. I suggest you tee into the main fuel feed between your selector switch and the tank and then always run with switch in reserve position. (Just basic fuel supply priciples)

    But if you do and it runs out, you are screwed. I ran out in the middle of the lake the other day and luckily I had some gas left in reserve.

    you should hook the T into the reserve line then there won't be problems of running out of gas

    Guys where you T off is not the point, Most people I know try very hard NOT to run out of gas because as Mr. Murphy sez it will always be at the most inoportune time! Such as WOT and that is the stuff seizures are made of! Granted if you are not going to keep an eye on your fuel level, you may be stranded in the middle of the lake. But with you depending on the reserve and consistantly running out of gas on min then switching to RES you are gonna be sitting in the middle of the Lake sooner than you think and it won't be from fuel, it will be with a seized motor! Good Luck

    You should always tee into the RESERVE line...IF for some reason the hose connections leak and allow air into the fuel, it will only occur when you need to use reserve, so that you don't run with the possiblities of this at all times.

    I tee'd into the return lines on both of my ski's, then reserve is unaffected as well as main position, and if the primer o-ring fails and airates the line it only sends the air back to the tank... no harm done.

    Anyone see any reason for this method being negative?

    thanks
