if I can't get it fixed what size of a cordless drill do I need to pop it up and down with a 24 volt?

Check your model and serial number as it might have been recalled.

CAREFREE POWERWINCH P55000 Recall - ID 68366


Here is the manual with several warnings about that motor.

here is the parts manual and you may be able to cross reference the actual motor to another manufacturer and reassemble it yourself if you are handy.

Good luck.

PS - 300 bucks is not all that expensive from the looks of the motor assembly.
Just my opinion on that; but I would definitely check out that recall as you may have gotten a recalled unit installed by mistake.

WOO HOO! My lift motor works again!!! If anyone has a problem with their lift motor take it or send it to these people. Hutcherson Auto Electric 701 S. 50th St. Tampa Florida 813-247-4365. I took my motor to them. They hooked it up and not working. They took it apart and found the simple problem and put it back together for 18.00 I am so happy!!!
aperantly since the motor was loose at first the bottom magnet things got out of wac. These people are great they work on alternators starters and all kind of motors for a great price.
