Default Removing GE Club Car motor

I have loosened the four bolts on the trans axle holding the motor, sprayed with PB blaster, banged with a rubber mallet and no budging. Do I need to remove the 4 bolts holding the end cap with speed sensor? I have 2002 Ds IQ system.

Can I replace the GE with an ADC motor? I realize the speed sensors are different.

I welcome any and all solutions.

Motor removal

Yes, you can use the ADC in place of the GE. It's a direct swap.

No you do not need to remove the end cap. It is very common for these motors to get stuck on the shafts. As for removing it, there are a lot of different techniques to removing it. You can keep trying what you are doing, you could also try rolling the car around and see if that makes the motor pop off (I have heard that works). You can also try what David (TahoedawgZ71) did. He is the service manager at a CC dealer in Augusta, GA:

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.
And yes, you can replace the GE with an ADC motor. As long as the ADC motor is a CC 48v IQ motor

EDIT: Beaten to the punch by the man himself!

So that is how he broke his foot...

David, should you leave the bolts in the motor a little way to keep it from dropping completely ?

I'm pretty sure I remember reading that he recommends something soft such as a pillow to put on the ground where the motor will drop to keep from damaging it

No, that's a good way to snap the bolt off in the motor. I wouldn't advise it.

Thanks to all.

I did heed all the advice. i put the three bolts back in the motor loosely. I removed the rear passenger tire and mounted a damaged rim with no tire, Jacked the car as high as possible then blocked the axle with a 2x4 with a rope attached.
Removed the jack, yanked the rope and viola.
I did this in 10 minutes with no blood on the knuckles.

Thanks again. I love this forum.
