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."
Very important... valves get out of adjustment and are easy to set. This is where I would start FOR SURE. Check out www.buggiesgonewild.com and an example of how to do it on EZ GO 295 http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/ezgo-gas-tech/1196-ezgo-295-350-engine-valve-adjustment.html

The serial number of the Golf cart does no good to ID it. I need the model number and the displacement of the engine as well as the number of cylinders and what year it was produced..

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,

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
