is it just idling or does it rev? your battery may not have enough juice to move it.

the obvious...the drive belt is installed?

there really is no idle...they start and they rev up...jack the cart up and put the rear end on jackstands so the tires are off the ground...start the cart and tell me if the clutches move when the in and out when the engine revs

Thanks for replying. This was someone elses project I purchased. The choke is from a car and was grounding out. There was also a giant key / ignition I switched out for the right one from ezgo and re ran the choke. It is running and it is fast. I just ordered the right choke from ebay. After the choke gets here, my next move is to find directions to the lift kit that came with the cart it is a 4 or 5 inch lift.... a bunch of parts and no paper. My guess is that I should probably take it to someone to be done?. Whats a fair price to pay for someone to install the lift ? Im in GR Michigan
