Just the top end makes sense, I was skeptical on a complete rebuild too just cuz of all the crud built up under and all over the case. A real mechanic would clean everything better than that on a rebuild, Of course I didn't know how long you've been running it with that oil leak.....

Either way you did alright on the purchase, And it's not going to take much more at this point to make it scream.

Thanks Skoal!

Yeah Dabble, that makes sense! I am always skeptical anyways when it comes to buying stuff like this when people act clueless, but I think he really just was! lol.

I didnít run it long at all like that, the first time driving it I noticed something was wrong. But, underneath the motor there was a lot of old nasty oil that wasnít cleaned up and had been almost dried on so look like it had been an on-going issue. Thinking that it is probably what caused his problem with the motor prior to the rebuild. I did clean it up nice now.

And yeah, not much more to go and everything will be running like new! Then I can starting working on the cosmetics Iíve been itching to get at!

So I put the cart on jack stands and got a steady forward speed going and sprayed starter fluid in what I think was the correct location of the clutch and it didnít seem to rev up like it was supposed to if the seals are bad.

It did look like there was A LOT of gunk/sludge by the seal/clutch area..could it have gunked up so bad that it wouldnít rev up for this test? Or is there something else to test?



I notice that this looks like itís sticking/spuddering when the cart is having issues. Is that normal because of this issue?

Default Golf cart leaking red-ish/pink fluid underneath fan

I guess I am confused, too. If I only sprayed in the clutch area, wouldnít that only test that specific seal?

Should I be spraying somewhere else to test the other one? Is it ok to spray the starter fluid in the fan area?

Your picture is the driven clutch. I'm really hoping that you sprayed the drive clutch.
You want to spray it directly in front of the starter belt pulley down on the shaft. You can also spray the front seal, but with the flywheel covering the seal, it's hit and miss.

Take the drive belt off. Rev your engine, and see how it does. While the belt is off, you can also test the driven clutch. Squeeze the two plates together with your hand. You should not be able to move them. If they tilt towards each other at an angle, the shaft bushing is worn.
You can also remove the white dust cover, and spray the shaft with some graphite lube.

This is a driven clutch that I replaced. The cart would barely move. You can see where I squeeze the plates together. Look towards the center.

Haha yeah the picture is not what I sprayed, just something I noticed when it was having the issue or seeming like it was bogging down.

I believe I sprayed the right area, then, and no rev up. I only asked about the front seal because with the leaking issue I was seeing, most of which was towards the front, so I would think if it were just one seal maybe thatís the one?

Iíll take the belt off here in a bit and do that test and also test the driven clutch and let you know.

Thatís where I sprayed. I might not have got down in there all the way, though. It was hard to do by myself. Maybe Iíll make my wife push the pedal and make sure Iím spraying it good, too.

That's the right place. Spraying the front seal isn't real reliable, but worth a shot.

Well..the driven clutch and belt appear to be ok. They are spinning fine now, I think the pedal was just stuck earlier and not going all the way down.

I sprayed both back and front again and made sure I got in there good in the back and and itís definitely not revving up at all.

I am noticing that there isnít very much fuel in my fuel filter, and this should be full. Itís got to be a fuel related issue. Almost always requires choke to start..drives for a couple minutes then have to choke it again..which tells me itís not getting enough gas somewhere?

Itís a brand new fuel filter, fuel pump, and carb...maybe I have bad fuel lines? About all I have left to replace? Or something somewhere isnít tight.

Could a wrong or improper air hose cause issues with my carb or fuel pump? Just curious because itís literally a rubber plumbing elbow on here and has kind of a tight/ squeezed connection.
