Default 36 volt motor test

Hi to everyone I'm new to this site. I,m trying to find out how to check a 36 volt golf cart motor to see if its ok.If I connect jumper cables to motor and run straight 36 volt to it, how fast should it turn.The reason for this is that I had the Motor checked and where I took it they said it was ok but i don't think they took it apart.All I think they did was check the continuity which it does have . I put the motor back on the cart not hooking up any wires to it and ran 36 volts direct to the motor but it only ran at half the speed. Thats what happens when I connect everything, and with cart on stands only runs at half speed if that.Please help

Thanks

I put 36 volts direct to the motor it runs but it seems like its only running at half speed.When I connect the cables there is hardly any arc.

Is it a series motor?
Does it have a pigtail of wires?
What year is it?
