1986 Columbia Golf Cart Clutch Doesn't Open All The Way


New Member
The Clutch on my 1986 Columbia golf cart at full throttle dosent open all the way while driving . When I jack it up and run it the clutch does open all the way. The clutch seems to open more in reverse

If your engine does not run at top speed the clutch will not open all the way. The Harley engine always turns faster in reverse but that is entirely another subject and has many theories. Any hoo if your cart will run around 18MPH + or - a mile or so you are in good shape. If not I would suspect engine condition or tune. I expect your governor has been disconnected. I do not know much about HD carts newer than 1980 but a lot of things are the same!
