Default 89 ezgo runs but wont accelerate

I am currently working on an 89 ezgo was running fine but now only idles. And won't spool up rpm's. Seems to have spark, gas, carb is clean with good conpression. And the throttle is woking properly. Opening as it should.

It's most likely not really running.

Feel the exhaust to check for heat.

I suspect the starter is turning, and nothing more.

It's almost not running but it does sputter at the bottom trying to run almost like a flooded car
