    I got a used mikuni 33 flat slide and there was no accelerator pump installed.  The rod and cap are there but no plunger or spring in the bowl.  Is this normal on a jr dragster to not have the accelerator pump installed?

    Yes, it is normal.  We have used 33 mm and now using 42 and the pumps are disconnected on all of them

    From what I know, when companies started making the billet bowls they didn’t include the necessary parts to make the accelerator pump work.

    Personally I like having the extra bit of fuel right at the hit. It prevents the engine from starving and give it that extra bit of fuel it needs to get going.
