    I have a flink vbox spreader and the throttle control stopped working. I took it apart and figured out that the small electric motor that spins the actuator is bad, does anyone know where to get another motor so I don't have to replace the whole thing?

    If its like mine it has little brushes that need to be cleaned. The end opposite the worm gear you should see two small spring where the wires hook up. Under those springs are VERY small brushes. Remove them and clean with a small emery board. Than clean the brass piece that the brushes ride on. Try that you might get lucky. Good luck
