With the aid of an assistant, lift the rear end up 3 - 4 feet into the air and drop the rear end onto a concrete floor onto the inverted brake drum. The drum is inverted so you don't damage the wheel studs during this process. The motor will fall off as soon as it hits the ground. If it doesn't, try it again. I've never had to drop one more than three times. Don't laugh. Try it and thank me later.

Mods, can we get David's method for removing a stuck motor stickied please?

I've had to look it up several times lately, it's a great method and it works.

It's probably not the most professional, or the most graceful method. But after trying those two, I found that just dropping it works a whole lot better.

What keeps the-- DROP --of the rear end, from breaking the cast gear case, in the middle. doesn't take much to crack and put it in pieces quickly

The axle is stood up and dropped on the end.

True but all said and done, not much other options out there so in a sense from professional such as yourself with these carts it would be called something like "Technical Engineering" Or maybe Cost Effective" etc etc...
