Just bought this 91 Safari. When the guy who sold it too me started it it fired right up. When I get it home it won't do squat. I've been pulling on this thing for a half hour. It's got a primer. I opened the hood and traced the line from the fuel pump up to the carb. When I use the primer I don't see any fuel going to the carb. Any ideas? I already put fuel in too. Is there an easy way to start these things? Feeling hosed. Thanks

check that fuel is not, key is on, kill switch is on, dead man switch on
Do a spark check
Also you may need to pump the primer for a while untill it starts moving gas, I find that 2-3 pumps of fuel into the engine is good, if you over primed it and it will have wet plugs

When you prime it does the primer push tuff or free.. normally the ski-doos have primer issues when they sit for a while. You might have to pump a long time to get the primer to start pumping.

prime it 2 to 4 times it should fire right up unless you got a fouled plug. nick
