Default Need some advice on a 1986 DS

I just bought it and will start cleaning it up next weekend. It already has a lift kit,rear seat, and a light kit(I will probably have to fix)

Is there anything I should look out for or need to take of first. I know it needs brakes so of course that will come first. Just wondering as far as upgrades. My other cart is a 1989 electric Club car and I went all the way through it.

I have an '87 and have turned just about every single bolt and screw on it since I got it. Post up some pics!

I will as soon as I get off.

I have a ton of questions about it, but trying to do a little research on my own to see if I can find the answers.

I totally redid my 1989 Electric Club car so this is my next project, it is the one in my avatar.

Here is a few I think I may have to address 1st, keep in mind this cart does run but it just doesn't have brakes.

I noticed the belt is real lose


Seems to have a new spring


I believe the gasket where the carb mounts to the motor is leaking and I am wondering what is missing where the orange arrow is pointing


I will need to lube the cable going from the FnR switch to the tranny i believe... it is stiff as all get out


I will also have to buy new exhaust and a new muffler

The belt is supposed to be very loose at rest, it tightens up when the motor spins.

The belt is supposed to be a little loose, the clutch engages and tightens it up to move.

Lol beat me to it. Doesnt look as much of a carb problem as a oil leak somewhere there.

ok thanks, I thought it may be way to lose since I can squeeze it till it touches.

any Idea what goes to the orange arrow in the pic with the Carb? I noticed another line coming off the bottom of the motor but it was capped off with a screw.

How fast are these puppies suppose to run? I think this one might hit 11-12 mph. My electric cart smokes it. It shimmers and shakes when you try and move slowly, is that from have a torque spring installed?
