I am at the point in my 400 Storm project where i am trying to get it to start.I can get the motor to run by dumping gas into the cylinders.It only runs for about 5 seconds though.When i swapped the motor off i drained all the fuel lines,the fuel pump and the carbs,so right now there is no gas in them.Also there is only about a half of a gallon of gas in the tank.So my question is,what do i need to do to get it running from the gas tank.Do i just need a full tank of gas or what?Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

on some sleds the breather hose for the tank, u can put a airgun on it and blow air in and it will run gas to the carbs to prime them. We did it on out puma after we cleaned the carbs

on my poo after i finshed everytihng all i did was add air pressure into the gas tank ...about 5 psi and then i found it easier to just blow into it with a full air seal around the openening and the fuel just shoots in

I take some air pressure & cup my hand over the gas tank with it.I use a air tank ,thats all I have ,If you use a compresser just be carefull ,when the tank starts to expand let off it.Alot of times you can hear the gas hit the carbs.works great I used to do this all the time with a old sled that had poor pump if it sat for over a week or so & I do it to all my sleds at start of season as I drain the gas in them.

Well i tried the compressor method,and i got the carbs to fill with gas i think.I still couldnt get the sled to start though.Could i have flooded it out when pressurising the system?Btw i used a 12 volt air compressor.Hopefully i can get this thing figured out soon! Trav
