Default '86 motor removal

Happy Saturday to everyone.

I need to know if there are any tricks to removing the 36v motor on my '86 cart. This is a last resort to solving a half-speed issue. I have posted threads but as yet no positive results. Did get the F/R switch wired properly( thanks fleagt ).
I removed the three 7/16 bolts and the one 1/2 bolt. Motor slides (with a lot of resistance)away from housing about 1/2" then kinda stopped. I am afraid to force it. Is it going to terminally fall apart once it comes off? Tricks on getting it back on ?
Thanks

spray some PB blaster on the shaft where they mate, looks like you can get in there, work the motor back and forth on the shaft and it will come off, careful when it does come off the motor is HEAVY

Wouldn't be the first motor that came off in pieces. If the penetrating lube doesn't work expect the field housing to come off the armature when you pry on it. Not a bad thing necessarily. If that happens, the idea is to get the armature to slide toward the diff with a soft hammer and pry back ON THE COUPLER not the windings. Back and forth a little at a time until the armature releases from the input shaft. In worst case scenario I have had to remove the diff and take a sledge hammer to the armature (it will not survive this procedure) and beat it toward the diff housing and pry back and beat and pry, etc to get them off. Hope yours isn't that stuck.

Take loose the nuts from the motor studs, and pull the end cap off, the armature will come out with it. You can also pull the armature out of the motor without taking the end cap off, just note there'll be a lot of resistance as the end of the armature has to pull up out of the bearing in the end cap.

Thanks for your advice but at one point someone switched out the motors and my studs are off set, 2 on armature end cap and 2 on the casing. I saw a video on you tube where this guy is rebuilding an older motor and I see what you are talking about however my motor is not built that way. It is a club car motor but not the one everybody says should be in it.

Can you post pics? regardless of how the studs are, the armature should pull up out of the motor without taking the end cap off, like I said before, this will likely be hard to do though due to the end stub of the armature being set down into the bearing in the end cap. If you can get that armature pulled out then that might make it more evident how to proceed with taking the rest of the thing apart.
