Had to remove the thing motor/gearbox from my TAF. Friend hastily desoldered the wires fro mteh motor lugs before snapping a pic.

Sourced a NOS gearbox from somewhere in Germany. Paid dearly for it.
Plan to install it, but want to make sure I solder the proper + - leads to the proper motor lugs.
Can someone upload a pic of the proper wire color coding?

$50 follow-up question: Anyone rebuilding the thing gearboxes? Might as well get my original rebuilt and have on hand as a spare... I know it can be done - there's a Youtube video,

, but I'd rather just outsource this....

Connect a 9V battery to the motor, if it turns the wrong way reverse the wires.

Hmmm....would it even matter if it turned CW or CCW?
