Fuel is coming into both inlet hoses to pumps but only 1 hose has fuel coming out.
How strong should fuel be coming out?
It ran great the prior week but now it wont start.

They both should be pumping about the same. Are you sure that its just not a dirty carb? They have 2 pumps to be sure the machine always has fuels so one pump should allow it to run.

Appreciate that, I have read that they rarely go bad but maybe I need to replace or rebuild both of them

Doesn't take much for something to crawl out of the tank and into someplace it doesn't belong. We bought a skidoo last year that had been sunk, the fuel pump was full flakes of crap that were floating around the tank. Flushed everything out, its run fine since.
