Default Used motor or armature

I have a 96 DS, 36 v, VGlide resistor cart with 2.97 hp GE motor. The splines inside the motor shaft are worn, so the cart sounds more like a gas than electric.

I am looking to get a replacement armature or a used motor if possible. No need for a lot of speed, our campground has a 15 mph speed limit.

Thanks for any help.

Your best bet is going to be find a used motor or send your motor to plum quick and have them rebuild. I tried a few months ago to find a new or replacement armature and had no luck except for a place that would rewind them and it cost as much as a new motor. You could also try new brushes in the motor that you have if you have the ability or confidence to change them yourself (not hard at all). I replaced the brushes in my motor and it made quite an improvement in the performance.

Also with PQ they will send you a new motor (few extra dollers extra) , then refund core charge when they get yours . That way U are not down .

easier and cheaper to find used charger, if you can keep the old one at least you,ll have a few parts but to buy a new transformer thats almost as much as the charger and in some cases more.............................................. ...

Thanks for the suggestions. The PQ option looks good, have to do some more checking but that is at the top of the list.
