This works - just be careful the motor doesn't hit you on the foot

Dawg's method works like a charm! He told me how to do it a while back, and I nearly laughed until I actually did it. Is it a hassle getting the rear end out? Sure, but not nearly as bad as ruining an armature.

I just had the same issue. I was going to try TahoeDawg's approach, but I ended up getting it off without having to remove rear axle. What I did was spray the shaft where the armature meets, with Kroil oil, which penetrates a lot better than WD40. I let it sit for about 10 minutes, then sprayed it again, and applied heat from a commercial grade heat shrink gun. I then grab the motor casing and pulled, to my surprise, it slide right off, and crushed my fingers between motor casing and rear axle.

I had been trying to get this thing off for a an hour or so, so I was surprised, that it slide off so easily, which resulted in my finger getting smashed, but its all good now. Hope this helps.

Growing up on a farm and owning Center Console offshore fishing boat, heat has always been the key to working on many stuck bolts.

Safe heat application is a key factor in getting rust to break loss, but I have used Kroil oil for 40 years in my industrial and home work. No better penetrating oil on the market, in my opinion

WD40 will make things worst.

Ok. It is a little bit of work to remove the rear end, but this method is absolutely a winner! Had no luck tugging, pulling and frustrating myself to a fury of wonderful words! Removed rear end flip hub and dropped twice and out she came!!! JOYYYYYYYYYYYY! Almost made me forget all the previous frustrating futile efforts. Thanks TahoeDawgZ71
