It should shake right out of there. The pickup is just a weighted screen with a hose nipple end on it. The pickup is attached to fuel line that attaches to the pipe nipple on the outside of the tank. See my pics above - that's what it attaches to.

I'll try and take some pics of the throttle linkage for ya. Otherwise, just google OEM Polaris snowmobile parts and you can find a parts schematic online.

unscrew the white plastic nipple in front of the tank. your pick up line will or should be on that. if not fish it out the tank. as for the spring, is it a lot of play or just a lil? you should have a lil play .

There is so much play that the cable is loose and the throttle handle won't return to it's position no matter what and the end of the cable comes through the opening of the handlebar. I'm pretty sure it needs a return spring hooked up there somehow to keep it under tension. When I get to the sled on Thursday I'll take a picture of the area. It's in the storage unit right now.

When I get the old rotted fuel line and filter out of the tank I'll match it up and get things reattached.

The line is off and I could barely see the filter in the bottom, so I drained all the remaining gas and crud out of it then turned it upside down and shook the thing a ton trying to get a hold of the filter and if there was any line left on it. No luck so far.
Is there a problem leaving the old filter in the bottom and just running a new line and filter? I don't see any old line in the bottom, but that could be attached to the filter or completely gone. Need better lighting and longer needle nose pliers.
What type of filter is it?
I have 1/4 fuel line already, but now to figure out how much I need to cut.

The float was nasty, so that is all cleaned up and ready to go which now slides up and down with ease.
No pics of the throttle spring... forgot about taking pics.

Just me, but I would make sure to get that pickup screen and old fuel line out of the tank before proceeding. That pickup should easily come out, unless there's some fuel line still attached to it. It's an OE part, from what I can tell. Can you hold the tank upside down and then see it through the filler opening? It should be right there. Keep after it.

I think you'll need 3/16 fuel line. That's what I used and looked like the right size. If you go smaller in size, you could have trouble getting enough fuel.

My float was a mess, too. Cleaned it and put it back in. Works fine now.

I attached some pics, but they did not come out very well. The last one shows the linkage.

I tried everything I could to get that filter out. It was rotted off the nipple that screws into the tank and I know now from what I remember seeing inside the tank that the filter has no hose on it because I could see the flange that the hose slides onto.
I included a few questions in the photo which should explain what I was getting at the other day. Your pics were very helpful.

I looked at the pic. The wire around the hose is just there to keep the hose in place. THere should be a screw going through the loop to keep the wire/hose in place. I'll try and get a closer pic today.

The spring I don't know. Is there no tension on that for you? It should twist, but then spring back into place. I'll try to get some more pics for you.

no screw for the hose piece.
I'll have to dig further to see why the throttle lever cable won't stay tight.
Can't find any diagrams on line for a return spring, but I'll keep checking.

Thank you for the help.

Ok. Went to the farm over lunch and took some pics for ya. Hope that helps.

The throttle turns clockwise. The spring sets right on the end there with an "ear" on each end to keep tension on it. Fairly simple. Is your spring there or missing?

Oh, and I did use 1/4 fuel line. My mistake. Sorry.

I got the screen out of the tank finally and bought some fuel line, but it's too big to fit through the hole and I think it was 5/16". Will run and get another piece which is no big deal. Did you use any clamp on the hose because it appears you can't fit a clamp on there and get it inside the tank. I need to blow out any of the old crap that's still in there and I should be pretty much set for the first stage. I will check the other side to see what springs are still in place for the throttle.
Thank you for all your help so far.

3/16 or 1/4 inch line. and no i don't use a clamp inside of the tank. they will rust anyways. did you get a new pick up filter for inside there also? don't use the old one. all it is is a weighted filter with a spring around it.

I used the old filter in the tank. Just cleaned it real good and it looked good as new. It's just a weight with a screen on it.

I was wrong earlier about the fuel line. I used 1/4" fuel line and that seemed to be a match to stock.

I have everything now including a new filter and some new 1/4" fuel line. Heading over to the sled after dinner to see what I can figure out. Fresh gas, clean tank, new battery and hopefully some luck.
What is the correct length for the fuel line inside the tank?

Why do the Polaris dealers charge $35+ for a piece of fuel line?

That's about how much I put in there, too. Long enough so the pickup laid flat on the bottom of the tank.

I called about that $35 charge and was told the price on the web is for the roll of it but they could sell it by the foot if needed. I had already ordered some from Dennis Kirk so I told them no thanks.
