Default 1971 Harley Davidson Model D - 3 wheeler

Greetings,

I am new not only to this forum but to golf carts as well. I am an Oracle DBA, and my hobby is woodworking. I have no mechanical/engine background.

I recently inherited this cart from my father (passed away last week) who used it for running around a small town in NW Iowa. It used to run quite well. I am not able to get the cart running at this time.

Based on the Model tag I found (3B 17601 H1) I believe I have a 1971 Model Type D 3-Wheel gas powered Harley Davidson golf cart (it should be pictured).

I removed the gas tank, emptied it and put in a gallon of fresh fule/oil. I also put a brand new battery in it. When switched ON, and the gas pedal is pressed the starter (?) runs and runs. The motor will not start.

I removed the spark plug, reattached the plug wire and again tried to run it. The plug did have a spark.

As I mentioned above I do not have a lot of experience with engines (golf cart, mower, auto,)

I welcome any suggestions as to my next step(s).

Thanks for your time,

i would guess you have trash in the carb if you have a spark. remove the air breather assembly you should be able to see the carb. the fuel hose goes to the carb it attaches to a piece of plastic on the side of the carb remove the screw in the center of the plastic piece. there is a screen behind it odds are it is full of gunk. remove the screen and clean it. if it dosent help it the whole carb may have to be removed.

Put a small bit of fuel in the cylinder and see if it try's to run. If it does the fuel pump/carb probably needs to be cleaned and primed. If it doesn't try to fire, there are a few other things to be checked.
