1984 EZGO Starts But Doesn't Engage

The gf decided to buy this 1984 EZGO cart for a couple hundred bucks, leaving me to get running.

Emptied gas tank, put new gas in, put new drive belt on it, which this engine is is not front to back it is side to side, as fast as drive belt. When in gear the engine starts and spins but doesn't fast enough to engage the belt to catch and make the cart move. Pulled cover off the engine clutch and it looks in real good shape, nice and shiny, just stumped on why it's not running faster. Maybe the carburetor? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I don't think it's actually starting and only cranking over on the starter. Have you checked to see if it's got spark and gas to the carburetor?

Welp, got home and pulled the wire off the plug then the wire pretty much fell out of the coil. So definitely gonna need a new plug wire, and probably a coil as well. Any recommendations where to order parts?

Novel idea, make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy, She should be about 5'8", good looking, and loves to cook. :rotflmao:
