Here is a thought from my experience. My motor went underwater as the result of a bilge pump failure 2 years ago after a lot of rain. I took the motor out and brought it to my local golf cart dealer (who also sells batteries). He suggested 2 options: a new motor or a rebuild of the old one. Being on the cheap side, I opted for the rebuild and what I got is a lot more power and a lot less draw. All the difference in the world for a lot less money than a new motor. Now, I know that there will be golf cart dealers out there who might soak you for the rebuild, but it worked for me just fine. Just sayin.
