Default 1986 Ezgo golf cart 2 cycle

This has been a project for over a year now. The cart sat for 2 years with nothing covering the engine compartment before I got it. It will run fine for several minutes, but when you come to a full stop it wonít fire and go. It will also stall if you just ride it around for several minutes. Earlier today my son drove it 150 feet and stopped and it wouldnít fire. Everything is new under the seat. The only items I didnít replace are the Coil, primary clutch, fuel tank, and a box with wires coming out beside the ignitor. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. The engine was rebuilt last year. It has spark at the spark plug, the battery has been charged, Iím at a loss. Itís feeding fuel.

I should add that usually after sitting for awhile it will fire and go for a short time again. Also spark plug is new in last month.

Sounds like a twenty dollar carburetor is the issue.

Itís possible but the carb is new a month ago. Iíve changed a ton of stuff and nothing seems to fix it.

Yes, but is it a $20 carb? If so, that's probably the issue. The cheap china carbs are usually junk. If you have the original, clean it properly and use that.

When it "won't fire", take a spray bottle with fuel/oil mix and spray it directly into the carb while it's cranking. If it starts, then you likely have a carb issue.

Thank you, Iíll give it a try. I did put the prior carb on, but it didnít fix the issue. The old carb leaks a lot of fuel out of the overflow, so thatís why I changed it originally. Someone locally said something about a possible vapor lock and suggested taking the fuel cap off but that didnít work either. Lots of gas/black on spark plug but itís getting really good spark.

I know we probably canít suggest any dealers but if anyone has a recommendation for a place to purchase a good carb I would be open to it.

Thanks again,

Erick

also would like to know where to get a "good carb". I bought an Amazon carb, my buddy has had good luck with them. Wondering if it might be part of my issues as well.
