New ZX-&R owner looking for some help

Hello everyone

I bought a 1997 ZX-7R today it has 49,000 miles on it but i got it for 939 dollars today which i considered a steal since the engine is able to crank and we had it burp start once already.

Long story short it sat for a year, I have narrowed it down to the fuel pump being clogged, Rust in the tank and the knob in the gas tank probably needs replaced. Tonight i tore down the corroborators and I have worked on ninja 250s and ninja 500s. I had some trouble with this i am used to two corroborators. I got them off but in the process this dropped out and I have no idea what it was for. Thankfully it did not drop in the engine while i had the holes open.

I have no idea what its for. As for the carbs the floats look good besides one carborator. Looks like it was rebuilt in the last 5 years.

Another question is does anyone know where to get some cheap Orings for the carborators? They expanded on me as i was cleaning. The floater Orings are looking dicy as well.

Also any suggestions on removing the fuel pump would be great it looks complicated to move and navigate the fuel lines out successfully.

Last question I saw that this was just ducktaped and electrical taped together. I believe its for the smog part of the bike, is it alright if i just create my own? or is it easier just to eliminate it?
