It is most likely related to the rings, but running it would unstick them very fast if they were stuck. It's possible that sitting let rust develop in the cylinder walls and there may be some grooves in them now. They could also just be really worn cylinders. They make some oil conditioners which I wouldn't recommend on a car, but might work fine on a golf cart. I can't recall the name, but it was in a silver can, maybe called engine restore... You could always try that before resorting to a rebuild.

How do I bypass or remove the delay upon starting my Yamaha G16 A/E cart?


Not supposed to have a delay. Something is wrong.
Possible causes are Starter/ Gen bad, loose belt or worn, I am thinking this a gas cart? Usually G16 A is gas and G16 E is electric.

Honda gx620 on golf cart occasionally bogs down & blows enormous cloud of white smoke from exhaust.gas getting in oil also.runs great until this happens


What ussually causes white smoke to come out the exhaust is oil being sucked up in carb. Typical causes are too much oil in crank case or PVC valve. Or really bad piston rings

MY 1993 CLUB CAR GOLF CART WILL NOT MOVE, I HEARD A LOUD POP WHEN I WENT FROM FORWARD TO REVERSE/ANY SUGGESTIONS?


check to see if there is a circuit breaker on the wire path from your batteries. Could have blown the motor but You would see some smoke more than likely, and smell it burning. What you described with the popping sounds like an electrical short where the wires just burned up but again you'd smell it and maybe see smoke. The switch may be bad also check it with a meter to see it its making contact and see if voltage is coming up to and exiting the switch.

I got 1997 yamaha G16 golf cart that I put a new carb and changed the oil and new spark plug and smokes really bad? How many turns do I need to start with carb adjustment screw?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The new carb. fuel mixture adjustment screw should be very close to the setting needed to operate the engine normally. You should not have to move the screw more than 1/8 th turn in either direction from the current ORIGINAL setting.
You mentioned the engine smokes really bad. Several things cause a smoking engine:
1. Older engine
a. Piston oil rings stuck to the piston skirt or rings worn out
b. Piston wear
c. Cylinder wear
d. Valve stem and valve guide wear
e. Valve head and valve seat wear.
f. Crankcase breather clogged
g. Overserviced engine oil.

Perform a compression test on the engine. You should have a minimum of 120 PSI pressure. The higher the pressure the better. If the cylinder compression is under 110 PSI the engine needs some serious maintenance.

I can not emphasize enough that the new carb needing any major adjustments is a symptom of other problems within the engine. Like I mentioned earlier if you have to make a fuel mixture adjust more than 1/8 th turn in any direction from the original setting something else is wrong.

IF by chance someone got over anxious and has moved the fuel mixture screw start at 1.5 turns from just barely closed. I am surprized that the new carb did not come with a plastic cap over the mixture screw.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
