    choke and primer...best of both worlds

    So I like primers sometimes and chokes for other times. Made me think, why not both so I came up with this.
    Got a primer bulb on ebay for $1.50
    Had the other fitting in my parts stash
    drilled 2 holes into the stock flame arrestor (obviously with it removed) and glued them in air tight
    then just connected it all up as seen in the pics.
    Now I have a choke for most of the time and for those cold mornings after a long time not running I can use the primer to help save my starter.......
    works a lot better than I thought it would! Just thought I'd share in case anyone is looking for ideas

    I drilled and tapped one carb, leaving stock choke in place on my ultra150. You only need to feed one cylinder to get it started, I never understood why people plum all 2/3 cylinders

    I was thinking of doin that but my thinking is that if I only squirt gas/oil in one cylinder then the other cylinder is running without lubrication for a little bit.....Probably not a huge deal depending on if there's gas in your fuel lines

    Any particular brand of "sauce bottle" or will any old sauce bottle work?

    The cylinders are already lubricated, also run 1 oz per gallon in the fuel tank. If you look at using Tís to split the fuel lines to the cylinder only the one closest to primer gets fuel.

    Depends on the ski, 4 strokes are lubricated but not 2 strokes with oil injection block off like mine. I use a T and it seems to give both cylinders fuel just fine...
