Default Go kart steering

Hello My name is Jacob I am pretty new to go karts I recently purchased a Manco Coyote yard kart with a 6.5 hose tecumseh on it with a 49 series torque converter. Anyway I got the engine running and it runs great but when I am ridding it around it turns really sharp to the left but hardy turns at all to the right nothing is hitting anywhere and I am completely stumped on what could be marking this happen any help would be great.

Also the sprocket on the torque converter is very worn so much that the chain skips a lot I have looked in to it and canít find a way to remove the sprocket from the rear pulley on the torque converter any help on this would be great to thanks

Get some pictures up of the front and as well as the tc set up. About the sprocket, your big drive sprocket is likely worn too, this wearing often causes because the chain is too stretched. It’s possible you may need two new sprocket and a chain, but that’s worst case scenario
