Welcome to BGW!

These might help.
First is a schematic and second is a wiring diagram.

What you have is an electric motor mechanically connected directly to an open differential, so one wheel will move freely while the other has to turn the motor.
You should be able to move both wheels by hand when they aren't touching the ground. Whichever one is engaged to the motor, won't turn easy, but it should be moveable.
If cart has set for awhile, the grease in the axle and motor bearings may have solidified.

i would check the brakes, Drum brakes are notorious for seizing up when sitting a long time. my marathon had a rotted brake cable that collapsed and stuck the shoes out.
if you cant get the drum off you can reach the adjuster through the inspection hole on the front.

Good luck
