    Anyone know who makes the little motor attached to the assembly? The gears don't seem to be the issue. I cant get the motor to run even though there is power going to it. I soldered the wires with new flux and solder still nothing. I'm thinking the motor is the issue. I'd hate to pay $269 for the entire assembly from Marco when all I need is mostly like that little motor on top. I'm thinking I just need to find a part number for that little motor and find a little motor company? Please help. The client has a party on the 12th of July and I'd like to help her get her thing hand working again. Side note, the optos work and the thing switch registers in test. Just cant get the motor to turn over. Errors I'm getting at boot up are the thing switch, and both thing hand optos but I tested them and they work. I'm guessing since the motor is shot, the errors are generated since its been so long since they've been activated in game? Any thoughts and help would be greatly appreciated. This one is in your hands pinside lol!

    Just lobbing a few ideas at ya.
    You've used a multi meter to ensure power is indeed being fed to the motor not just assuming right? IF yes what power reading do you have?
    Check to see if the collar portion of the gear that attaches to the shaft is loose (as in does it spin by itself freely). If yes have someone braze it.
    If not a problem:
    Pull the board that thing plugs into and reflow the solder joints to the header it connects to. Potential cold solder joint.
