1996 xlt wont start without pouring gas in cylinder

New this season... pulled the carbs, and cleaned them. Anyway, the sled won't start unless I pour sowme gas down each of the cylinders. Once I put gas down the cylinders she fires right up and runs great after a few seconds. What's going on? Needs more vacuum to pull gas to the crabs? Any suggestions? Thanks.

check your fuel lines. if you have a crack or loose connections it will make it impossible for the pump to supply the carbs.

Just clean the carbs. 96 xlt... that has a choke, right? It's probably not working correctly because of that crappy ethanol buildup.

Check your pick-up tube in the tank. I had that problem.

Does it stay running after you prime the cylinders? If so, you probably just need to clean and adjust your choke circuit properly. It isn't too hard to do, good luck.
