I have an ezgo workhorse 1200 gas cart. When I tep on the pedal the engine runs and the cart clicks and jolts forward as I shift it. Same in reverse but will not go. It was fine the last time I used it.

Raise the rear wheels off the ground, and turn them by hand. The wheel on the other side should turn in opposote direction if differental is good. This will also show if brake is locked.

You are looking at the driven clutch and it does not stop turning the shaft?

I'm thinking driven clutch may be bad or an axle key has sheared at brake drum.

Is there a way for me to take a small video of what happens and send it to you? What time can we take this up again this afternoon? Or is there a way to transfer this to another technician?
