The pully was cooperative.

I ordered the motor from fixitnow/repairclinic. It arrived yesterday.

This morning I prepare for the insertion.

My granddaughters are happy to observer/help.

And upon opening the box we find:

The foamy instapaks had ruptured.

 We remove most of the easy stuff.

But, the foam pervaded the motor's winding coils on one side. It does not appear to have penetrated to the rotor, which spins freely.

I sent a message to instapak inquiring about flammability, and out-gasing. No response yet.

My main concern: the coils are now insulated by the foam. In use this will probably trap heat, resulting in outgasing and possible flames.

I sent a message to repairclinic.

No repair today. We are frowning.
