The motor/gearmotor is factory-installed with a bushing on the lead exit. In order to install the terminal box onto the motor/gearmotor, this bushing must be removed. Unscrew and remove the plastic bushing from the motor/gearmotor’s center ring terminal opening and discard (except for type 34R motors/gearmotors. Leave the standard bushing in place).
