Question EZGO workhorse

We just bought an EZGO gas cart. After two days of use on rough terrain it just quit running. It turns over but will not engage to go forward at all. We have a full tune up kit on the way but have no real experience with this Suzuki 11 hp engine. Additionally, any thoughts about adding better shocks for the cart? We are thinking of lifting it at some point...we need some thoughts on this, it's our first cart and is being driven mostly by our 12 year old ( very responsible and sensible ).

Correction... This is a fuji model eh35c. On a EZGO st350 body. Txt. It turns over but won't start. Battery is good. It is getting fuel ( can smell it) seems to be a failure to fire. Please post any ideas. We feel it might be electrical? Do these things overheat and ruin the coil? We are new to carts but my dad is really handy.

Welcome to BGW :)

We need some more info to be helpful. A model and serial number if you have it, sticker on top rail above motor. Is the motor starting and it just won't move ? If it starts and won't move, jack up the rear end and see if the wheels spin then, if so, you have a stripped wheel hub. If this is the case, pull the rear wheels and hold the brake while pressing the gas, the stripped hub will have the nut spinning but the studs not.

OK, I type slow...

Check your ground wires running to the motor to the battery and the frame

Two easy tests, either your carb is flooding or you have lost ignition. Take a spare spark plug and connect your plug lead to it and sit it on a metal part of the engine. Try to start the engine and see if you have spark. If you do take out your spark plug and see if it's wet. Change the spark plug if it's wet. Will the cart start and run now? If it starts and runs, smokes black smoke, and shuts off, more than likely some crap got into the needle seat in the carb and is flooding the engine. It would be a good idea to remove the carb and thoroughly clean it, replace all the hoses, and the fuel filter. These are reliable systems, but are susceptible to old fuel and the gum it turns into! It doesn't take fuel long at all anymore to go bad!

Thanks guys! It's running. It appears that the problem revolved around the fuel pump. We got fuel through after disconnecting the line right after the pump because we found the other hints useful but not solutions. Continued with common sense...we have replaced almost all the hoses...a small air leak might cause the system to loose the siphon ability is our guess at this point.

Kgsc...we got hosed on this cart because we did not know where to look for the series number and now that we do...it's been removed...the eh35c on a txt body is as close as we get. I have not figured out how to post pics yet but daddy is matching Manuel's he finds on line to what we have, lol and he seems to think we could have from 1993 forward to about 2003. The front end seems to have had a golf ball catcher at some point. We are replacing the shocks but the front end is a MESS daddy says. We will be back with more questions I'm sure!

Thanks for the clues!

Look on top of of the frame rail next to the right rear tire. May be a serial number there..
