Yeah that must have been another problem in the past, all the wet you see is fuel.

I'm not sure but I'm thinking that small hole in the carb is the vent. Maybe springbok is out checking his cart right now to see. Stock usually run around 10mph

It actually rotates around and has the shape to hold a piece of hose on it.

Wait never mind, your carb is completely different. Lol. I have no idea what that is.

I have a torque spring and mine doesn't shudder. You have the old-style 1984-1987.5 drive/driven clutch setup, I've heard they can be problematic. If one of your clutches is the issue, I'd convert both clutches to the '88-up style. They are a better design. But you do have to get both, the new style clutches move the belt closer to the motor.

Put the cart in maintenance mode and run the motor. Watch the clutches and make sure the belt is moving up and down the sheaves smoothly as you gas it.

My cart will do 20mph even with 22" tires on it. You'll need to adjust or remove the governor to get that.

One reason it may shudder at low speed, and I forgot to mention this, may possibly be inherent to the design of that clutch. On your older drive clutch (the bigger one, on the motor) there is no roller bearing in between the sheaves where the belt lays at rest. The new design ('88-up) clutch added a roller bearing in that area, possibly to smooth out operation at low speed.
