How to Fix my 1974 Harley Davidson AMF Golf Cart

I need advice on how to fix my 1974 Harley Davidson AMF Golf Cart? I just finished rebuilding the golf cart's engine, piston, rings bearings seals, etc. The problem is that the cart runs turbo when in reverse but when it's in forward it needs choke to get it up to speed.

I have tried every setting on forward and reverse timing and point setting between 22 to 25

thousand. I have ruled out the carb as the problem because it runs fine in reverse so it stands to reason that it should also run good in forward PLUS I installed the piston with the exhaust mark on top of piston facing the exhaust.

Definite new points and understand them. Try to set them more clockwise so the cam is really thumping them

Do not put your Harley cart in reverse or forward while the motor is still turning or you'll be putting in a new crank shaft. Been there done that!

check your disc brake .it could be hanging up.this happened to me on my 75.clean and lubricate and adjust brake make sure everything is moving.I too rebuilt my engine and now wont start in reverse,seems like too much compression.So I start in forward and quickly switch to reverse.Probably new battery will solve the problem .It spins forward really good on old battery,but you can see it trying to move in reverse but wont turn..

You might want to check the points. Mine would not start forward but would after I installed new points. Now it runs like new.
