80 Harley Davidson Golf Cart Cuts Out


New Member
my cart cuts out really bad when it is cold. Seems to go way better when it is in reverse, but it still pops and misses a little bit. I'm certain the fuel delivery is in good order, maybe lack of electricity or something. Let me. know if any of you guys have any ideas.


Welcome to Cartaholics.

I'd start with a compression test in forward and reverse. These engines will wear faster in forward and lose compression sooner than reverse will. It's a pretty common problem on the 2-stoke carts with engines that run both clockwise and counter clockwise.

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WHEN I FIRST GOT MY 1884 CART AND IT WAS JUST THE POINTS,,,,they were wore and out of ajustment for a quick fix..use some sand paper and readjust them to about 15..or 1thousands with a feeler gauge...doesnt take long to do and might save you some time and money...
