Default Splitting the rear end (2005 TXT)

I've got the whole rear end axle and all out of my cart. I have the left wheel on and the whole thing sitting on the left wheel with the right axle pointing straight up.. I have all 10 bolts out of the rear end and according to my documentation I should be able to use a mallet and upward force and separate the pumpkin halves allowing me to get to the gears.

Man ... it isn't budging at all!! Anyone ever do this? Tips?

FYI that posi only works in forward, not reverse if that matters at all to you.

I think Plowman's does a limited slip that works in forward and reverse for EZGOs.

I finally got the diff split... It took a little bit of persuasion that's all!

The Plowman's kit won't work in Gas carts and the folks i spoke to there pretty much only do Yamaha's.
They wanted no part of mine.

I too am in process of splitting the pumpkin, can you give me any pointers? and I like the limited slip diff idea while I am in there. Are you also removing the governor?
