Default Motor "clanking"

Hey everyone - first post, been lurking for a while.

Anyway, I have a 1999 Club Car 48v. There is a horrible noise coming from the motor area. Its sort of a clanking sound. It does it in reverse, in forward and when coasting (even if I pop it in N when coasting). If im going down a hill, it will make the noise. When i start to go back up, and give it gas, the noise will go away, until i get towards the top of the hill, then it returns. I have read several threads but havent seemed to find anything solid.

I have asked elsewhere, with no solid info. Someone mentioned a "$20 kit", but that was it. Figured I would abandon ship and try to get some real info here. Anyone ever heard of this?

Sounds like you need to replace the motor to differential input shaft GUIDE RING #101789101, RETAINER RING #101822801 and use adhesive #101813202?
This keeps armature lined up with differential input shaft because there is no bearing holding up armature at that end.

Thanks!! Ill look in to that. I guess I should have stated that my motor is a GE D380. Not sure if that changes anything but just wanted you guys to know. I just bought this cart (my first) for $175 and had to put batteries in it. This clanking has me worried that I am in over my head now though.

If the 1999 cart's serial # is 9912 752697 or later then it needs a "motor centering kit" part # AM 10039

It should work as far as I can tell as GE motors were used on later models and work with earlier models?

I am not sure about the fit, but the kit fits externally on the transmission splined shaft and not internally in the motor shaft. Go to Search and type in
" fitting a motor bumper ring to a 1999 DS " read the whole thread, it should give you some useful info. It certainly worked on the cart that I was sorting out.
