    good stuff, just for me, my 1st ordder took 4 days in transit and my second order took 5 days. Fed EX ground does not service my location well from yours!

    The motor seens to be working great. If you have a belt switch in your dryer setup you will have to modify the wiring to the motor. It is pretty simple and the motor comes with the equipment to do the mod. Overall I am very pleased with the product and the timely delivery. A reletively cheap fix compared to replaceing the entire dryer.
