Does this bolt screw into the bottom of the carb? It has a plain bolt holding the bowl on now. I found this when I removed the carb and it was laying under the carb on the motor.

Never mind that question, I was wrong, it has the same already in the carb, someone must have left an extra laying under it

Yes that's your main jet, It should have a port (or two, don't remember) in the side of it between the threads and the head.. Hang on to it for a spare, It might even have a different size jet in case ya need it

Continuing on with getting this going I decided to disconnect the muffler and see what it would do. It ran better and I was actually able to drive it around the yard a minute, so now I am burning the stopped up stuff in the muffler. After this going to get a good battery. The one in it will barely charge. Hope it will be good to go after that.

Checked engine compression reading about 125 psi. Does it running rough still mean the lower end seals could be bad?

125 psi is great. If the seals were bad, it wouldn't run at all.

Running rough could be a sign that the red, and blue wires from the pulsar have been switched.

I see that in another thread, you are asking about a rebuild.

Instead of jumping into that, tell us exactly what it's doing, and not doing.

I can already see that you have an 83 cart with an 88 exhaust. There's a good chance that that it's been rebuilt, and had other mods done.

Show us a picture of your ignition module. I suspect that the HEI mod was done.

If the cart actually runs, but just runs rough, you are probably ok. But, if it just barely runs, there is a good chance the piston is in backwards. 125 psi is slightly too good of a compression. That's why I suspect a rebuild was already done.

Tell us what you know.

That fuel pump is for a newer cart, but will probably be ok. There is a brass breather on the face that should be cleaned.

I assume these are the red and blue wires you are talking about, they run into the motor. It looks like the previous owner has cut them in the past but the colors are matching all the way up to the pigtail. I haven't had the chance to check the piston yet. I did remove the muffler and it seemed to fire off better with more power but will not stay running. To get it to fire off have to find the sweet spot with the choke and vary that to keep it running.

I think the previous owner has had multiple people working on it from the looks of things and couldn't get it figured out.
