    Golf Cart

    Any Golf Cart guru's out here? I have a gas one and sometimes when I go from stop, it'll squeal real loud and not go, but just for a couple of seconds, then it kicks in and goes fine. Sounds like a belt squeal, but not sure if that's it or if I am having clutch problems too... any thoughts?

    Sounds like a centrifugal clutch is slipping.

    Is it a belt drive? If so, have you checked the belt?

    There is a belt on it yes, I'd say it's a belt drive. Could it just be stretched?

    Possibly. Is there a way to watch the belt, or have a helper watch the belt while you try to drive it?

    Variable ratio belt drives are used on lots of equipment from 4 wheelers to high performance snow machines to even combines. Once a belt starts to squeal, that means it's slipping. Usually that's from abuse, getting wet, or just plain worn out. If the belt stretches or loses any width, it won't engage the sheaves properly.

    Sounds like one of your continuously variable clutches isn't back-shifting. Both clutches probably need to be inspected, cleaned and lubricated. Of course check the belt at the same time.
