Great price but holes for attaching are not threaded and I twisted off a screw trying to mount.

The motors arrived in a short time and shipping was included in the price which was lower that others on the web. The motors were packaged against damage and well as anything I have ever had delivered. A few words of caution. The motors wires do not have connectors so hang onto the old motors. You can cut off a portion of wire with connectors from the old motors and splice onto the new motor wires. An extra step but it provides more wire length and easier reconnecting to the printed circuit board. The holes that are used for the motor clamps are not threaded. The screws used need to be self tapping thread forming. Again hang on to the old stuff until the new motors arrive. I used a power driver and snapped a screw in the hole. There is a second set of holes in the motor so I rotated the motor 90 degrees and set the driver clutch on a low setting and finished tightening by hand. The motors have an odd odor but not the same as the old motors that burnt out. I hope just some excess lubricate out gassing. The motors do run hot. I hope that is normal.
