So the deal is, this acutator was shot! Posting this mainly so if anyone needs another reference and to show that no matter how bad it looks , it could work. I'll let you know Sunday funday! Bi-directional springs rusted together , actuator rod froze in case, worm gear froze in bearing that was shot , capacitors were broke free from their soldered spots , and of course magnets were unattached . What's crazy is there is literally no rust under this thing. I suppose the vent tube(was attached when I pulled actuator ) was broke somewhere else up the line and allowed moisture. On to the craptacular photos.
