The behavior of the slow jet being too big is if you run wide open throttle, come to a stop then punch the throttle right away, it is crisper than if it has been idling.

Thanks for the tips.  Long story short, I got it running and my daughter hit a tree with it.  So while it's been sitting waiting for parts I replaced all the fuel lines, filter, check valve, rebuilt carb and adj the float, replaced choke, installed heavy duty tie rods, etc.  Runs like a top now.  I ordered a fuel pump rebuild kit for it as well.

I'll have to look for that new jet.  Bc it is rich when it's idling.  I never checked the compression so I'll put that on my list too.  But it has plenty of power..   8)

If you disconnect the cables, you should be able to shift using the cable mount on the gear box. The cables need to be adjusted such that when moving the lever, the cable mount on the gear box moves the correct amount and moves to neutral when the lever is straight up. With the cables disconnected from the gear box, the lever should be able to very easily move. If it does not, then there is a problem with the cables or the lever.

Could check adjustment on the cables, make sure the lever shifts smoothly, lube cables, etc.

Check compression. Should have 138 psi.

It isn't technically a choke, it is an enrichment valve. When pulled, it opens a passage to allow extra fuel in. You are likely right that when missing, it was sucking air, but that was in addition to the extra fuel it would suck from the 'choke' being on. If the piece that is pulled by the cable is shoved down in the hole and held tight, the choke should be off.

The stock idle jetting already tends to be rich at idle. I suggest dropping the slow jet from the stock 52 to a 45.

Well, I ordered a new choke cable.  But i was able to glue the old one back together and it screwed back in and it still won't idle.  It does for a little bit and then stalls.  I have the idle screw turned all the way in and I adjusted the mix some.  Now it won't idle and it bogs down at full throttle.  I run 20:1 but see most are running 32:1 so I'm going to top off the tank with that and see what happens.  Any ideas or suggestions?
