Thats why I said "provided you have good stable blocks to hold it." Jack stands are not for running the motor.

I hear ya man but go back and read BORIS' post (the 5th post in this thread), and then click on his pictures thread. Neither jackstands or blocks will prevent the motor from exploding from overrunning a series wound motor. No harm intended

better yet, here's the link again..check it out

Finding Buggies Gone Wild ........ priceless
Finding people to actually help you with your cart ... again priceless
Help finding the part that could possibly end the noise on your cart ....... priceless
Allowing your motor to be converted shrapnel while failing to comprehend that you don't run your motor while elevated on jackstands .... even though you "have good stable blocks to hold it." and that "Jack stands are not for running the motor."
Priceless? ....... Nope, Back beyond square one.

If you think the clicking in the rear-end was annoying ... Wait till you hear that little-man in your head laughing at you after the motor goes south and your pulling out the smacaroons to replace it ......

Lastly ....... Put your earplugs in.

I can't believe anyone would rev any motor on jacks more than a touch to check things out. It's done on a daily basis at any golf shop I have ever been around. Why would it be necessary to rev one up for "only 10 seconds"? You merely get the wheels turning over and let off. It tells me something when no one has ever heard of this type of problem prior. That motor had to be reving like h---to blow like it did. Or maybe it's just an EZ-GO quirck.

What you first said was "after re-assembly you can run the motor with wheels on & jacked up provided you have good stable blocks to hold it." You can't backtrack on your posts bubba ....... you own that one.

Go back and read the entire subject about the exploding motor ..... CC-John has seen it, and several others I have spoken with (online) have seen it. Believe it or not, it isn't an EZGO quirk ....... it's an inertia thing (physics) ...... any unimpeded motor has the tendency to spin itself into oblivion. This 13 year old motor did just sooner than it had to.

You have to remeber that as a professional cart repairer, you take for granted some common knowledge that many other people (me included)working on their own carts don't know, just from a lack of experience and exposure to the industry. I used to have to remember this when talking to people about their cars and car repairs, everything needs to be laid out in plain english.

Hey-Don't get so upset!! Evidently when you say RUN you mean twist it up. Lets be real here I think you wound that danged motor up too tight and too long and thats why she blew. (count of 10 seconds with a throttle even 1/2 open and it's too long!!) I'll just back off here as I am sure everyone understands that you CAN start a motor enough to get the wheels turning over, to check for a noise, while it's on a stand without blowing it up. I won't push you on this as "A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still." Have a good day and keep those wheels on the ground.

I'm not upset ..... My post was to answer clubcar85's #3 post ..... "Has anyone ever heard of damaged to the motor if you place on jacks to test. I was told that you need to have a load on the motor or you burn up the bearing I myself have never heard of this."

Remember, there are others that don't know that these motors if given the opportunity would allow them to sling themselves to pieces (I did). Using assumption and conjecture to try figure out what I did right or wrong didn't avail you to answer the question that was initially posed.

My apologies clubcar85 for my part in your thread being hijacking.

and the original quote is .....

He that complies against his will,
Is of his own opinion still
Which he may adhere to, yet disown,
For reasons to himself best known.

...... Dale Carnegie changed it for his book


If you'd like to discuss this further, PM me ....... This is clubcar85's thread
