Remove axle, remove backing plate, reinstall axle(no snap ring)...then go to other side ....you see the routine here???
The only thing you got right here was the Snap ring on the end of the axle tube.

FOC are you saying that nothing will come apart inside the diferential if I pull both axles at the same time?

The m&s manual shows pulling the axle out but mentions nothing else about the diferential.

Jim, have you tried the brake drum swap yet? My cart is lifted like yours. I also use mine in "the woods" for the same purpose. I did mine today and there's not much to it. No problems at all and I don't have a Manual to go by. I took the retaining ring off, pulled the axle right out. Went to the other side and did the same thing. I even turned one axle with the other out and no miss alignment of the axles or gears. I had to turn the brake cable holding bracket over and put it under the leaf spring to keep the alignment right. Ineed to adjust the brakes before I put the wheels back on. I will get that done in the A.M. I will give and update on braking after I test the cart tomorrow. Alot of cable ground clearance is gained. Relatively easy procedure. The hardest part was getting to the retaining ring. If you haven't done it yet go for it!

Thanks willie, I'm goin for it just havn't taken the time was going to do it this wknd and decided to wait till during the wk. Mine will be a little more effort on the cable bracket part as I have a 6" block under the spring so I will have to fabricate a cable bracket to attach to the block, plus I picked up some used springs to add to my factory ones.

I have extra springs on mine also, and a lift block. I put the holder bracket on top of the lift block, and the springs on top of that. I took the spring bolt out and used a longer one and bolted the brake cable plate to the leaf spring. followed by the bracket to accept the u bolt. I had to turn the u bolt upside down(threads pointing up) for it to work.

I've done EZ GO rear end on an early 90's wouldn't be sure I would do another because what was involved with tolerances. Going from side to side might cause gear wear if you don't change these tolerances too. But not sure as I have not done this. Live under the theory if it seems to easy it might be.

Ya but, sometimes we tend to make things harder than they should be. With that being said, getting the snap rings off was a pain in the azzz. My snapring pliers were poor so I went and bought a just slightly better pair at discount auto, wound up having to alter them with the grinder and bolt them together vs the cute little spring clip they came with. Once the rings were out the swap was easy.

Fishing dude the CC your just swapping out the brake back plate there's no tolerances to be concerned with.

Now off to fabricate a new cable retainer.
