Question about Golf
SOURCE: golf cart smoking
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.

Testimonial: "thanks for your advice. I will try an additive before a rebuild."
so many possibilities...
does it roll fairly freely? (checking to see if the brakes or rearend seized up)
Are there any "bad" sounds like things grinding? (Connection between Motor and rearend, axle splines...)
If all that is solid, it is likely in the controller.... (it takes a solid charge right... No bad batteries in there or loose connection? might want to check all the battery connections to make sure none are burnt...)
1997.. does it have the electonic speed control by that year? the other possibilty is that the accelerator is not working corectly. they used a resistor system on old ones that has contactors that would get worn out.... Newer ones control a potentiometer(sp) that controlled the speed.
Only a few real components to check, but if you are not mechanically and electically inclined, could be tough to isolate.

never leave charging all the time you want to charge it every 6 hrs of running time to let your batterys cycle down. it would be the same if you charge your cell phone everytime you make a call if you cant keep track of it get a state of charge its a volt metter like a gas gauge for the batterys if you do it my way you will get more run time and your batterys will last around 10 yrs if keep doing it your way them about a couple yrs on them

There is a custom Golf Cart that looks like a Jeep and is considered an electric club car. If you get a chance there is a show called Barter Kings and one of the shows actually shows one. They are not cheap.
