I posted earlier about how to test the transistor with a Fluke, look back on the earlier page. Maybe you can try one if you want to try and save the $145 and let us know. It is only a nickel and shipping from Mouser to try out! There isn't much to the circuit and from my experience these transistors fail pretty often. Jury is still out on this one though since no one has taken it all the way through and posted back with a fix.
Is there a specific reading. numbers from test were from 1.9 ohms to 9.0 ohms from B-E & B-C. I am pretty new a testing transistors. Does open means should have a zero reading from C-E? If I can get transitor I will chenge and post motor result.
