    Waveventure carb problem

    Hi, I'm trying to bring back to life a 1995 Waveventure which had salted up frozen carbs.
    So i used two carbs from a Polaris 1996 sl 780 for the ski
    . We finally splashed it the other day and it bogs down when giving it gas. I added fuel with a primer pump and it came alive telling me it was starved for fuel. I stole the main jets out of the original carbs and plugged the holes in the throttle plates with screws and locktight. At this point i'd like to add a restirictor on the fuel return line and see if it makes a difference. Any help is appreciated

    You put 38's back on it? Did you also get the fuel pump to feed them?

    Could be an air leak on the motor causing the lean condition. Which would explain why your changes with the carbs didnt help. Need to do a pressure test or look for possibly a bad crank seal.
