How to tell when too much water is added to a golf cart battery
Firstly is never add water to a discharged battery as the level will rise during charging. If the battery overflows, the sulphuric acid electrolyte causes the sort of corrosion it is difficult to stop or get rid of...
Heat generated during charge/discharge and natural evaporation causes some evaporation and adding a little (preferably) distilled water to a fully charged battery
If the battery electrolyte has been allowed to fall so much a cell appears dry, begin the recharging process on a low current checking the electrolyte level every few hours; if after around 12 hours the plates still appear dry add about an egg-cupful of water and repeat...
Eventually the electrolyte level will be correct - either a quarter to a half inch above the plates depending on the size of the battery or if there is an indicator, level with it. Once the electrolyte level is correct and it has been on charge for a few hours and then allowed to stand until cool the state of charge and battery condition should be checked with a hydrometer.
A healthy battery has each cell with a similar hydrometer reading within a very small margin and is close to the gravity of the original fill, typically 1250/1260.

Yamaha g14 gas golf cart. Why does gas blow out carburetor?
It isn't unusual for a fuel haze to hover outside the carb of a high performance engine but a golf cart engine is definitely not that.
A more detailed description would have been helpful.
On the face of things, it suggests the piston is rising on the compression stroke while the intake valve is still open but slipped timing is very unlikely.
The only other time when fuel is commonly blown from a carb is when the engine kicks back during starting and will spin backwards a revolution or two. Over-advanced ignition timing or a lean air/fuel mixture can cause this.
If it was ok before the new carb it would be a good idea to revisit that fitment, comparing the settings with the original...

Tour Trek Golf Cart. How can I adjust front wheel alignment?
I don't know the answer but usually the steering track rods are adjustable even on the most basic of vehicles.
If due to neglect on the part of the designer the track rods aren't adjustable, some part of the suspension/steering must be adjustable - suspension arms for instance.
If there genuinely is no provision for adjustment (that is difficult to imagine) and the alignment is incorrect - the words of my college tutor come to mind, "if all else fails, use the body jack to twist things until the alignment is correct".
