I was given a Dewalt 740 RAS with a burned out motor. I am trying to remove the motor and I can’t figure out my next step. I have removed the outer casing and removed every screw I can find. The motor will not come off and I am trying to figure out what is holding it in place.

Maybe those studs about 2/3 of the way down mayre have nuts on the backside of the housing?

Actually, they just slide into two holes on the front side of the housing. I started to hit them, from the reverse side, thinking they were stuck. They actually shift about 1/4” in the holes. The whole motor slides back-and-forth on the shaft about a 1/4”. I was thinking the bearings at the end need to come off, but I cant just pull them off.

Here is an image of the other side of the motor
