You know which way you went with it but, too me , it sounds like u may have tightened it too much. Also a few places to do this so where did u do it on the rod or on the cable? Just start undoing what u did...alittle at a time and see?

Yea, i adjuasted it at the rod and the cable...It just seems that when i try to back it off you have to push the pedal way down for it to start and i don't notice any difference in the jerkyness. Mayby i hav'nt tightened it back enough yet. Also I think i did loosen the nuts on the rod,which made the rod longer...I think? Any help is appreciated.

Did u open the accel box to see what effect u were having on the mechanism? There is a cable adjustment at the exit side as well....

Tell u the truth I tried to follow No No's adjustment suggestions and found that I had an all or nothing at all cart as well. So Use your own judgement and powers of observation....When u mash the pedal is there any unused throttle left at the carb? Hold the peddle down and check the throttle at the carb...( I had shortened the cable too much originally)

I had this problem with my gas ezgo and found that the screw to the idle plate had worked its way down, once I backed it out it worked fine.

Quote:
Your idle speed screw has the jam nut under the head of the adjusting screw.... which will cause the screw to turn in. You should back the idle speed screw all the way off of the throttle plate arm. Then tighten it until it just "kisses" the top of the plate, and turn it in 1/3 of a turn from there.
This was the information that I got from Bob-O. This might be different for your club car though. I would send you the link for my thread (it has pictures) but I have no clue how to do it. You might be able to look it up. Hope this helps.

Make sure all of your cables are funtctioning well. If nothing else try cleaning your carb. Make sure the carb butterfly is in there, we've had a few instances where it went MIA.
