Default Motor removal

Need to replace my 48v motor on a 1999 Club Car. All bolts and leads are removed but armature seems to be fused onto the shaft. Any tips?

PS: I went further and unbolted the casing exposing the armature.

Sounds like its seized on the input shaft. Happens all the time. You might have to pry it. Be careful not to break the differential case!

Use some grey anti seize when you put the new one on

Yes, just fused onto the spindle, can't pry without putting pressure on the cast gear casing.

I've been spraying 10W40 attempting to break down the rust inside the shaft hoping to break it loose.

Take the rear end out of the car. Take the passenger side tire off of the rear end. Take brake drum off. Flip brake drum around backwards and tighten lug nuts to where they are snug enough to hold the drum to the axle. Don't torque them down. With the aid of an assistant, lift the rear end up 3 - 4 feet into the air and drop the rear end onto a concrete floor onto the inverted brake drum. The drum is inverted so you don't damage the wheel studs during this process. The motor will fall off as soon as it hits the ground. If it doesn't, try it again. I've never had to drop one more than three times. Don't laugh. Try it and thank me later.

Man, am I glad my motor pulled right off. Being a 91, I wasn't sure how it would go. I've heard of these things being tough.
