Harley Davidson Golf Cart With New Points Carb Coil Won't Start


New Member
1979 Harley Davidson golf cart with New Points. Brand New Carb. New Coil. New Fuel. New Fuel Filter. New Spark Plug. Spark plug & points gaped correctly. Compressions 100+. Timing Is Correct. Yet it only sputters every once in a while, with choke but won't start. How does this make sense? I don't know. I have the same question. Any replies would be greatly appreciated, kind of stuck in a rut.


Actually yes a lot of people use it.

Have you checked to see if your pumping gas to the carb? Have you tried a little gas in the carb to see if it runs?

Ok, so now i jhave discovered that i have put the negative to the positive and positive to negative, my fault i guess, but the wire was red and i put that to the positive, only reason i found out was because i was looking around in the manual. could this have fried the coil or condeser?
