The linkages came off the arm of the motor. The arm was still firmly attached to the motor. I don't think there was any way I could have got them back on incorrectly.
I suppose it is possible, though. I'll check it all out in a couple days. I have to make a trip out of town either tomorrow or wednsday, and tomorrow is sposed to be a tad wet.
I really suspect the motor, and have since pretty early on, when I heard the clicking from the intermittant controller.....

Yeah, too bad it would cost 3 times as much in gas, as the tool would, just to make trip over there........

...you may have posted that 5 years ago, but you solved my problem this afternoon.

Thanks

Peter, I think you are a little lost,
This is a Ford site and you posted it in 80-86 area!


I think your truck is closer to the 94 Ranger P/U so might try over in that area or try Google for a Mazda site.


Good luck
Dave ----
