Well, i'll get a new battery just cuz, how in the world do you get at the fuel pump to check the filter? it's inside the tank i assume??? it looks to be a seperate component than the tank, so getting to it has to be somewhat easy?? right???
also, i noticed there is like a diapragm on the end of the fuel rail, appears to be tied in with the fuel return somehow. Anyways, there is a clear tube/hose coming off of it and just hanging int he breeze...it appears to be cut off..almost like it got pinched between something. We looked at BIL's polaris and he also has this vacuum canister looking thing (very small) at the end of his fuel rail and his hose/tube goes back to a port on the manifold, so we figured this is a vacuum controlled fuel by pass, but i looked up my stuff on the arctic cat parts catalog and they call it a vent tube, so i dunno??? hooked to the fuel rail it seems funny to me it'd be a vent tht would allow fuel to just drip/spray into the engine bay...but we looked for probably 20 minutes trying to find the other half of the hose or at least a spot that looks like the hose fell off of, but could'nt find anything.
If the battery/fuel filter dont wake this sled up I'm at a loss...our local dealer is 3 weeks out so it's be a long time before they could even get to it, and i'm trying to eliminate all the stupid things a normal guy can try and home to fix before paying $75/hr shop rate
