Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • soak injectors in cleaner for an extended period of time to dissolve varnish like old gas residue;
  • • determine if the injectors are clicking when attempting to start.

Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.

what type of cleaner? how do I know if it's clicking? this is a pull start sled not electric start are you familiar with battery less efi systems?

it says your a motorcycle mechanic? do you work on snowmobiles?
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

On similar type of engines, yes.

  • what type of cleaner - have you tried clicking on the linked cleaner?
  • how do I know if it's clicking - screwdriver against the injector body while listening on the handle.

Or perhaps you would prefer a second opinion / alternate approach to your concern. The question would now be re-opened as I would rather opt out.

Good luck with the repairs.

well that's pretty rude. I was just asking if you work on snowmobiles. you don't have to be rude I want a refund
