Ok I thinking with the info you posted I have a small thing you can check on the wiring harness by the pull start (recoil) side of the engine there will be a small black box this is a relay (Bosch 30/40) go to any parts store and purchase one cost is from 4.00 to 10.00 and replace it what I think is happening is when you try to rev up the machine it's breaking contact of this relay I hope this helps do not get rid of this machine I'm sure it's a simple fix also check for fouled spark plug this can cause similar issues I hope this help

Wait, it just wont turn over, like the engine won't rotate?, that is either a broken crank, which not unusual for those 500's or you seized it, (welded the piston to the jugs). if this isn't what you mean, and it will turn over but not on its own power, then either your jets in the carbs are clogged, fuel may get to it, but not through it, or your rings are stuck closed and giving you low compression, check this by pulling it over slowly, you should feel each piston completing the revolution with a prominent glug glug. grab your primary clutch and rotate it back and forth, it should have a bit of play, but if it clanks and has alot of play, your crank is busted

I don't know where you live -- but up here in Alaska ( where it is very cold ) we have problems with water getting into the fuel of just about everything ( condensation from sitting )and the snowmobiles I have here I have to drain the carbs every now and then to drain out the little bit of water that finds its way to the carb bowl. ( just a thought ).
could also be a blocked/dirty jet in the carb, to cover all bases I would remove the bowl from the carburetor and spray down all parts with carb cleaner and then re-install and then try and run the sled. ( 9 times out of 10 the problems are carburetor related ).

1992 indy 500 efi, fuel pump will not pump when I pull the engine over, it will only pump when I turn on the key, why?


It probably pumps to bring the fuel rail up to pressure then shuts down. If you crank the engine and it is not injecting fuel the fuel rail pressure will not drop hence the pump will not start.

this is caused by a stuck float in the carburetor. remove the carb from the machine, remove the float bowl from the carb, using carb cleaner - spray the components down and clean out any debris, make sure all parts move smooth and seals are clean, clear and not cracked,, re-assemble the unit and install back onto the sled. this will stop the constant flow of fuel.

First off, you need to put this under a different product.

For another, check the battery before you ask dumb questions!

Most efi sleds use a battery. Check it.
