    I had to remove a motor a few years ago and there was a much easier way to do it. IIRC I removed the back half of the motor from the front mounting plate/end cap. I don't think I had to remove the gears to do it. I

    I can take a look and try to remember exactly how I did it, if that would be helpful.

      This is easy but works only if you need to replace the stator portion of the motor. In my cast the rotor coils were burnt out as well so the whole assembly had to be removed.

      By the way, you cannot "do it from the top" as the previous post speculates. The top of the vertical shaft has a nut on it that looks like it might unscrew, but it is an integral part of the shaft and *can't* be removed. Don't ask me how I know.
      What do you mean that it "can't" be removed? I just did this this weekend on 2 BT3100 saws where I was swapping the motors and it was the easiest way to do it. At the top of the vertical shaft there is bolt with a nut and a washer on it that screws into the top of the vertical threaded shaft and acts as a stop for the maximum height adjustment of the blade. This nut and bolt were easily removed. It is easiest if you adjust the blade to 45 degrees to get more space between the top of the shaft and the bottom of the tabletop to get above the bolt to unscrew it. Once unscrewed set the blade adjustment back to 0 and then you just rotate the height adjustment wheel until the motor pops off the top of the threaded shaft. Just make sure the motor assembly is rotated counterclockwise out of the opening where the motor rod sticks through as it will bind up with the top of that opening as you reach the top of the shaft.
