I changed the title of your post - so folks could have some idea of what you need help with.

Reason: Title changed
I don't recognize that as being an engine part. I not 100%, but can't recall seeing it and can't find it in the engine overhaul manual.
Fuel pump rod isn't worth making. it's available from Suzuki. Part #15315-82000. MSRP is $6.39.
Thanks, I did find the rod, but the darn thing wont start!? it turns over fine,but wont start, getting fuel...I'm stumped! just found out the head is warped, now need to take it back apart! put it on my glass table with sand papper between it, guess I'll drag it up and down while watching TV, for few days........I guess! any better ideas?
Did took it apart, then put back together, but had a brainfart, torqued with in-lb instead ft-lb! thought I had compression issues. now everything but the exhaust manifold is put back, but still not starting, then took a multi meter to the ignition coil, not getting any ground!? so jumped the ground to frame, still no go! and the coil got really hot!...so I'm sure there's a short somewhere, please help.
yes sir, ran a ground from ignition coil to the firewall, thats how the I-coil got really hot!
No wonder. The ignition coil grounds intermittently through the distributor (points, on old type systems), not directly to a grounding source.
The breaking of the electrical current, traveling through the coil, is what causes the collapse of the coil magnetic field and subsequent high voltage spark to the plugs.
When you grounded the coil to the firewall, you made it into a little electric heater.
Perhaps you would be wise to look in the factory service manual, for some insight into what you're doing. If, you substituted inch pounds, for foot pounds on your head bolts, that would be only fifty inch pounds. For head bolts? That's barely past hand tight.
The FSM download is available free, from several sources.
Good luck to you.
Ok just found out, I had the +/- backwards, now, I've got spark, but still won't start, I'm thinking I had 1/2 tank of gas, my sami was parked sense sep 2013, also it had a keyed gas tank, but lost key, drilled it out, so maybe lot of water got in. So I'd put a whole bottle of dry gas treatment in used start fluid in the carb, only got some minor puff of black smoke coming out(didn't attach the exhaust manifold yet), but won't start! Should I put octane booster in? Or get rid of the 1/2 tank of gas left? If so, any idea how many gallons is half of tank? May not have a bucket thats big enough for it.
