What is wrong with the original or you cannot rebuild it because of parts availability?

Parts do look to be hard to get, I would go to a small engine shop with the old carb and see if you couldn't retrofit a different carb on there or try to rebuild the one you have. I did check ebay and found a brand new one, but pricey. Arctic Cat Kitty Cat Carburetor Carb 3004 036 1978 1988 1993 1999 Brand New | eBay

Try Olson brothers racing they have kitty kat parts. They have a up grade to a 18mm mikuni carb. You have to get a flange carb fuel pump and throttle cable. The old carbs on those kitty kats starved themselves of fuel because there gravity fed. Other thing is if you dont have the lift kit on the sled look into getting one. The sleds sit so low they get hung up in the snow. That helps a ton.

A '72 should have the Kawi engine - give me a call at 701 214-3184.

Correct.
"72-'76 kitty cats has the Kawasaki motor. '77-'99 kitty cats used the Suzuki motor. Either you are incorrect with the year of sled you have or the original Kawi motor has been swapped out for the newer suzuki motor.
Carb and motor parts are still available from your local Cat dealer for the Suzuki motor kitty cats.

I have no clue if it is an original motor I just went by manufaturing tags on the sled and engine the sled says manufacture date is 1972 and tag on motor says suzuki manufacturing ?? I know nothing about them except that it looked cute and my daughter fell in love with it? and that the guy I bought it from I didn't trust even before I bought it!

I just found out the tag was was misread from the tunnel and I know now from the serial number that it is a 1978 with a spirit motor and I have been on a wild goose chase looking for the wrong part numbers! I appoligise to everyone and thank you all for the help you provided me! if it wern't for people like you I would have never even known I was searching for the wrong part numbers! I will keep you all posted when my lil girl's machine is working like it should and post a pic then too! Thanks to everyone
