    Please help, 2002 Virage TXi 1200 DI (Ficht)

    Ok, i pull the fuel pump and the regulator had falling off. i put it back on, put it back together and i checked fuel psi and it was slowly going up started at 10 and then went up from there. I pinched the fuel return line and it shot up to 30psi

    How did you, specifically, "...i put it back on put it back together..."? Did you re-attach the fuel pressure regulator (FPR) utilizing the hose barb method set forth in these links?

    Welcome

    Do not assume there is only one problem that needs to be found and corrected.

    The best approach with any old PWC is to go through it from end to end. Check everything, do not assume anything is correct until you have checked.

    There are a bunch of recommended maintenance, service and upgrade things. Among them is to properly reinforce the fuel pressure regulator inside the fuel pump body.

    While you have the fuel pump out, check that the bottom of the fuel tank is clean, no dirt or water contamination.

    After reinforcing the fuel pump and reinstalling, check for correct fuel pressure. The common method is to connect a pressure gauge and run the engine. And alternative method is to probe the brown wire at the fuel pump connector and connect it to electrical ground.

    It is likely leaking between the nylon housing and the steel nipple insert. That would explain why your fuel pressure is low. It should almost instantly rise to 20 - 23 psi. See this link for how to correctly repair it:

    Be sure to click on the updated procedure within the above link. I sent you the old, cotter pin method link, as it has some useful info on how to remove the fuel canister and re-install it.

    While you have it apart again, add an O-ring around the oil level sending unit body. They fit loosely in the tank and, in turn, leak. Also, add a gear clamp around the neck of the oil sending unit tank boss.

    Additionally, check your reverse mechanism while you have the oil tank out and it is easy to remove. They had issues. See the "stickies" for a thread on how to repair it.

    If your fuel lines are stiff and have lost their pliability, now is a good time to replace them. Be sure to utilize a replacement hose rated for marine applications and Oteiker clamps
