So my upcoming 84 900 originally had an 8v motor in it; I plan on dropping in the 16v from my last 900 because I cant keep the 8v. My question is how much pressure does the line have? Ive got a pretty good idea on how Im going to splice the lines together but want to know what Im dealing with, TIA

Done this many times. Same concept as replacing a check valve on a Walbro fuel pump. I usually attach a brake line flaring tool to the plastic line so you get a good grip. Leave about an inch of space from the cut, do not use heat or you lose rigidity in the line. Spray some lube on the barb, grab it with some vise grips, apply steady pressure and twist back and forth a little at the same time. Works every time, never had a splice fail, even on pressure lines.
