Default Grease in Rear differential

I have a 97 48V Series Club Car. I have ordered a new motor and controller from D&D, Vic is a huge help and a stand up guy if anyone ever needs some advice on a upgrade.

I removed the motor from the differential and it has grease all over the inside where the splinecomes out. Is this normal. I know you need to put grease on the spline when the motor is installed but this is way more than that. Any help would be appreciated.

yawecar, Welcome to BGW!

I'm no CC expert, but can you post a pic of the diff?

Clean/wipe off the excess grease and LIGHTLY grease the spline for your new motor. There shouldn't be lots of grease but there might be signs of some slung around in the case.

Thanks, I will try to post a pic in the am. It just appeared to be more grease than normal. Do you need to check fluid/grease in the rears end?
This site has been more than helpful in my project.

The elec. diff takes 30w motor oil until it pours back out the fill hole Antisieze compound is what should be on the splines

This should equate to approximately 22 ounces of 30W oil. The factory uses grease on the spline shaft on assembly and after long periods of time it may wear out/harden and make removing your motor in the future difficult. I used marine axle grease on my spline shaft as well as my steering wheel spline when I pulled it off. I agree that an anti-seize compound would be the ultimate choice if available.

I wish CC and Ez would invest in about 10 cents worth of anti-sieze compound on each cart

Totally agree I was fortunate though since my cart was only a couple years old when I purchased it and the motor came off relatively easy.
