Default Re: Has fuel but wont run without Starting fluid

So I went home and did a compression test yesterday, which was 75psi. Seeing how that seemed really low I tried pouring gas down carb to verify the cart would run with just gas instead of starting fluid and it did. I took a second look inside the carb and the butterfly wasn't opening when I applied the throttle. I then realized with the air filter off the throttle linkage wasn't bolted down and allowing fuel into the carb. Just wanted to post what was wrong and what the fix even if its a little embarrassing lol. I still don't understand how the throttle cable was controlling the accelerating when I manually fed gas into the carb? Anyways thank you guys for the help
