Pop the seat and watch the drive belt with the motor running. Does it rise up in the drive clutch (front clutch, on the motor) and sink down into the driven clutch (rear clutch, on the axle) as the motor speeds up?

The drive belt does raise up in the front drive clutch but does not go down in the driven clutch. Thanks for the reply.

Not sure what you're saying here. Define "cart goes fine". Are you saying that with the (unspecified) cable removed, the cart runs and drives fine?

Does the "cable that hooks to top of carb" move when you step on the gas pedal? I'm wondering if the engine is really running or is it just turning over on the starter? If the cable from the pedal to the governor, or from the governor to the carb break it will just crank the starter but not open the carb any to give it enough gas to actually run.

I don't know that this would be the case...he did say that the belt rose in the drive clutch, which probably wouldn't happen if it was just turning over and not starting.

Sounds like one of the two throttle cables is not working or broken.

Make sure your belt is in specs along with your secondary sheaves and that the sliding sheave in the secondary clutch isnt binding. Your belt could also have to much slack.
