    1992 seadoo gtx wont suck fuel

    Hi, I have a 1992 seadoo gtx. After rebuilding my carbs (dual carbs), I am now having an issue where the carbs are not sucking fuel through the lines. If I pour premix into the carbs it will fire right up then die a few seconds later. When I pull the fuel input line off of the MAG carb, there is no fuel in the line. I tried to suck fuel through the input line with a syphon pump and this did not pull and fuel either. I have also replaced the fuel selector switch and fuel filter. I'm not really sure where to go from here. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thanks!

    Go to tank , lines have fallen off inside tank , pull tank , clear tank , blow selector valve clear , debris can collect in that YAMAHA fuel valve , replace hoses , check for missing oring on strainer filter also.

    I agree. Or just plain rotted off inside the tank.

    Thanks for the input. I have an update. I pulled the fuel tank forward. This caused the fuel level to rise in the rear of the tank. I then tried to suck some fuel with the syphon pump and it worked. We then put the tank back in its usual position and we lost suction. Could this be a problem with the baffle? Is there a cheaper way to fix this or do I need to buy the whole baffle for $200+? Thanks for your help.

    So today I pulled the tank out and I have 2 rubber top baffles. One has 90* fuel line fittings and the other has electrical components for the fuel gauge. The one with fuel lines connected to it had the internal tubes fell off and there are a bunch of pieces of the tubing in the tank. I cleaned out the fuel tank and then added new lines on the internal side of the baffle.

    That is what is supposed to be there on the early type , 94 start to see one piece late style plastic baffle w/o fuel sender , now clear out fuel selector valve , on off res , debris will collect in there too , this is why they sold you the ski cheap , unable to correct problems , good job , check that strainer filter for o ring too , or it will suck in air
