Removed the front cover of the machine, held in place by 2 screws on top. Removed the ground strap secured to the motor and (2) 3/8 inch bolts holding the motor in place. Next I removed this the lower belt, pulled the motor forward, then disconnected one by one, each individual electrical connector and connected them to the new motor to assure the were connected in the proper place. After this was done, the new motor was put into place with the belt reinstalled, ground straps reconnected, and bolted back into position.
Job finished in about 20 minutes.
