I need some stock Polaris SLT 700cc help?

I have a fuel filter/ separator and a chunk of hose that goes to top of the oil tank?

Everything runs now but where does this stuff go?

Fuel filter goes in hose from tank.

Maybe the other hose is for the bilge siphon system? It hooks up to the tube in the pump outlet nozzle.

Yes those wooden bunks you see is it.
It might see a county road but for the most part behind a side by side getting slipped into the river.

You might want to extend the tongue on the trailer. You can get sq tubing & weld it on. Reinforce the joint well.

Absolutely! But it’s really easy to maneuver right now so float test first , then the down the river test.

It’s perfect for a side by side or 4 wheeler.

I’ve done a bunch of work fast but it’s exciting and fun now..... hopefully makes a run or two.Image

It works!
Had a couple of water leaks.
Solved.
Carbs run like caca.
Should put fresh fuel in it! Hahahahaha

Gotta rethink the steering! It’s backwards from my airboat and I’m a lost duck! Hahahahaha

It bet it ran 20 mph is 3-4” of water and had room for lots more!
