got a question need ideas.

i have a 1975 ski-doo........yea dont go there!!!!!! :tut: :tut: :rotflmao: i havent had it started in a few years. greased it up, put gas in and it started all right but seemed to run on only one cylinder???? so i was going to put new plugs in it when i noticed gas on the floor. after looking it over i seen gas coming out of the overflow line of one of the carbs. it was like it was syphoning gas??? gas would run out, quit a bit and do it again.

my thought process leads me to believe some gaskets or seals dried up????? i pinched to overflow off hoping by today it would do what it needs to do. gonna go check it out later.

any other ideas????? now i've helped a buddy of mine take and clean my carbs before, but that was a long time ago, and its amazing how little gum and gunk in  carb can make a snowmoible run like crap. i had almost all the gas syponed out  and added 6 gals of fresh non oxy with seafoam and starton in it so its not bad gas..........

depending on todays outcome, and if its not good, think i'll bring it to our new fix it guy up north!!!!!!

I have a 1998 Ski doo and think it is getting old.  Go spend $1500-2000 and upgrade.

Probably the carb float stuck open.  Remove the float enclosure and work it free.
