1993 Yamaha G9-A Golf Cart


I only use my 1993 G9-A golf cart during the summer for work around the house and rides for the kids. Actually, it has been running quite well for its age, but I feel it needs a good "going over" to reduce the chance of a breakdown while out and about. I did change the oil within the last year and try to keep the air filter clean.

One problem I've had for a couple of years now is a carburetor that really spits and sputters when I am first running the cart. I typically have to keep one hand on the choke knob and pull it off and on for awhile until the engine starts running smoothly. The carburetor obviously needs work and, though I'm somewhat handy, I'm not sure I'm capable of rebuilding a carburetor (?)....at least not without some kind of kit and instructions. Also, is it possible that adjusting the carburetor settings might also help?
Something else I may need is a drive belt and starter/generator belt. How can I tell if I need new ones? Perhaps, someone knows of websites or how-to videos that can step me through some of these repairs. I, like most people, learn better by being shown how to do something.

These are just a few of the questions I have regarding my golf cart. I guess I'm just not sure at what point I might be throwing good money after bad. I'd like to think that I have at least a couple of years left with the cart.

If anyone can give me some advice, I'd certainly appreciate it. I'm kind of at a loss.

Thank you!
