Since I didn't receive an an answer but a question was it motor or transmission I had already figured it out so not being a jerk but I will pay the 5$ but the 13$ extra was of no benefit to me thank you for your time but this was easy I gave the info and figured it out before I even looked at your reply which was another question not a true answer
