Default 98 DS motor- WHAT IS THIS THING???

I am getting a loud terrible noise in the rear of my cart. I took the motor out,
and i see this clump of something there.

Is it suppose to be there? It is hard like a clump of lead? Do i try to remove or chip it out?

Or is it suppose to be there? This is a 7 HP 48 volt motor.

Check out the pictures

That is there to balance the motor. Like a tire balance weight.

Negative, Ghostrider. That balancing putty is important to keep the armature balanced and not banging around inside the case.

Glad i asked before i started chiseling. So i guess that is not the source of my rear end noise.

To fix your rear end noise you probably need a motor centering kit AM 10039 as it appears your motor doesn't have the guide ring. Do not use the rubber bumper that comes with the kit...

Thanks guys. I will go with the experts ( you 2 ).

Since my motor is a ge 7 hp motor, will it still use this " centering kit", ( and don't use the rubber part)?

When would you use this rubber part?

Never. Every time I've used it the motor locked up
