Default 97 Club Car Gas starting issues

I have a 97 club Car DS gas. Starter will turn the engine over as soon as the micro switch is engaged. it. Iím not the original owner so what has been done before I dunno. When I press the pedal the engine will turn over and idle and stay idling when I depress the pedal. Turns off with the key or when I go from reverse to forward. My issue is while itís idling if I give it any gas it quits firing (but starter is still turning the engine) I have to pump the pedal and when I let off the pedal it will catch and I have to feather it. Once I catch it it runs fine until I come to a stop again. It will stay idling but taking off from an idle is a PITA! Carb is the amazon special. Fuel smells a little varnished so I cleaned the carb and drained what I could from the tank and put in 5 gallons of fresh gas. But each time while itís idling as soon as the butterfly opens even a hair it falls on its face.

Sounds like a fuel filter or pump issue to me.
