It's a bit of a bear to change. Go with a new Bosch motor, it's tough enough to get to without putting in a lousy reman part. You might be able to find a new one without the squirrel cages, that's the best deal if you can find it. The you can put the old squirrel cages on a new motor.
I do have voltage at the fuse strip: touching a volt meter to either side with the other probe grounded to the frame gives about 14V.
