PostSubject: Fuel pump for 1996 Polaris snowmobile engine?   Fuel pump for 1996 Polaris snowmobile engine? Icon_minitimeNovember 1st 2016, 8:33 pm

i have a friend who wants me to putt a 1996 polaris xlt sp 600 three cylinder snowmobile engine on a show off/parade tractor.
The vacuum fuel pump is shot and i cant find a new one and cant use electric fuel pump.
Any one have an idea on how i can rig up something?

Maybe a diaphragm pump? I read the earlier polaris 3 cylinders had crank bearing issues. Does it have the oil tube to the bearings? i believe it was the ones on the PTO side. Is this the mono-block? Or are the cylinders 3 separate castings? The mono-block with the 3 into 1 exhaust manifold seemed to be more reliable, since it was tuned to less power? the mono-block with 3 separate exhaust pipes to a can and the block with the separate cylinders had more power, thus, higher wear.


......Did I mention that sleds are my other hobby? lol

Whats wrong with a pulse pump for like a briggs? that should move enough fuel right? or make a manifold with a single carb since you won't need all the power of a polaris triple.

If you have the fuel tank higher than the carb gravity will pull the fuel down.

Mikuni makes vacuum pumps for singles, twins, and triple cylinder engines. The twin and triple pumps look almost the same except there is one extra outlet for the triple.

Stuff like that is always cool. You could probably sell it and make some profit.

LUCKY!! haha, i guess i don't need it, I already have a polaris sled anyway. 1995 polaris indy 500 with the phenomenal 488 fuji liquid. Love that thing. The big difference between the '95 and '96 is the suspension. '96 is way better. My dad has the same thing I do, only a '96, and we've beaten the crap out of it. Never fails to to run and still goes 80. 5700 miles on his, 2300 on mine.
