    I have an old 1/4 HP GE split-phase 1725 RPM induction motor (GE
    5KH32EG) with internal switch for start winding. In order to remove
    bearing end cap on terminal end, plate on motor states "remove shaft
    clip by releasing locking tab" I don't see any locking tab or shaft
    clip, but the end cap is definitely clipped to the armature. No "hole"
    to insert a wire probe. There is a rubber isolation mount over the end
    cap bearing but it doesn't want to move without tearing. I cannot remove
    the armature from the other end because of the centrifugal switch.

    Motor shops are closed today (Sun). Anyone know how to "release locking
    tab" to get the end cap off the armature?
