    Unhappy 1989 waverunner fuel starved

    I hope you can help me...I purchased a 1989 waverunner recently. It was missing the carb/fuel pump so I purchased a brand new one off ebay. After I installed it I blew into the return hose untill fuel came out the main line. I then hooked it up to the carb. I started the engine by holding a gas soaked rag to the carb intake but I do not seem to be sucking gas up from the tank. There was an extra hose connection on the bottom of the pump that I assumed was an overflow. Does this need to be hooked up to something or ?
