87 Arctic Cat Question

I have tried finding a fuel pump in my Panther but can't find it. Is there one? Is it in the tank? I think I need to replace it because the sled just dies at idle. I am going to also replace the filter but my thinking was the pump is dying. Runs great at speed but dies when you leave it. I have screwed with the carb a ton but it still does it. Thanks

Follow the line from the carb to where ever it goes and " Wa La " you found your fuel pump. I don't think it would be your fuel pump if it only dies at idle. I've never herd of a snowmachine with a fuel pump in the gas tank before.

A few questions to help pinpoint the problem. What specifically have you done with the carb? It could be electrical. Have you changed the plugs? Are they gapped right? Should be .025" How easily does it start once it has died? Do you need to choke it to restart it?
