Looking for easiest way to check brush length and condition of them in motor.
there are 2 bolts holding rear cowl of motor on and an aluminum band that battery cable bolts come thru.. I have a history of always twisting off something
when i fool with removing the bottom nut of these type terminals on starters..or solinoids..
Open to any suggestions....Hal

Make sure that both the main negative and positive leads of your battery pack are disconnected.

Always use 2 wrench's, one to hold in place the bottom nut and the other used to undo the upper nut along with the cable. Of course same in reverse when re-installing.

Thanks scubabud for that info, but the question still remains, how do I get a look at those brushes to determine their condition.. will taking the two small bolts off the rear and removing cowl give me access to brushes?? or do I have to remove that aluminum band
that battery terminals run thru...

Why worry about them if the cart is running OK

Take a picture of the back of your motor and post it here...

Year of your cart, type of cart, etc. would help as well.

yes you can replace brushes but they arn,t like regular brush sets..........much larger and a bit harder to do, also cost more if you look at them you,ll see what i mean...............................

Ok shadowman,...I'll bite...tell me how I get a "look" at them.....Hal

Just checked and the back of motor and aluminum cowl on back is all one piece and terminals for battery hookup come through it with what looks like a fiber washer under bolt,
Will taking out two bolts on back of motor allow the removal of cowl with the terminals still in place...or do thy have to be removed (pushed in) prior to pulling cowl back.?

Take out the back bolts and the assembly will come off with the 2 armature terminals and brushes inside... still don't know the year or have pictures to refer to. Too much trouble to get that from you to give proper advice?
