1982 Yamaha G1

Really need some help. I recently purchased this golf cart and it only will run without air filter. When filter is attached, engine will load up, flood and die. Without filter attached, it runs like a new machine.

I would start with a carburetor teardown and cleaning, not just spraying something in the throat, and dumping and putting fresh fuel in the tank.

Thanks Pedro. I have soaked carb in ultrasonic cleaner several times. It looks like previous owner has installed an aftermarket carb that looks relatively new. It started loading up after I installed new crank seals. I just got done removing exhaust and using air to make sure not obstructed and checked port for carbon build up. Piston really looks in good shape. I'm running out of ideas.
