My bike also has fuel and spark and 180 psi compression, for certain old bikes especially two stroke race bikes like the pe there is a certain way to kick them I’m still trying to find out what it is for the pe IMG_4866.jpgIMG_4865.jpg
That's too much carburetor for the 175.  Buy the right one and try again.

I don’t think the carb is the main issue
