Early 80's Club Car 36 volt motor replacement
 
Hello,

I was given a cart with a GE electric motor with the model number 5BC48JB691A that is completely shot. I've found another motor locally that is also a GE with the model number 5BC48JB700a, but I'm not sure if that last part of the model number needs to be the same or not to work. Am able to swap these with no issue? Thanks.

Appears to be an EZGO Marathon motor. Pretty sure the spline count is different between the older EZGOs and the Club Cars

The motor in your cart has a male spline on the motor that goes into female splines in the rear end. The motor you found locally has female splines on the motor and go into a male input shaft on a rear end. In a word, no - it won't work. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but on the brighter side, welcome to BGW!!!

Thanks for the info guys, I'm just trying to get this thing up and running by summer so I guess I'll keep searching. Do you know of any replacement motors that would be compatible with the motor in the cart now? I have a feeling this this "free" cart is going to start costing a bunch of money!
