Default Best source for Kwikee electric step parts?

Can anyone suggest a good source for an OEM quality Kwikee electric step motor?

Got my last Kwikee parts from eBay as well. I get many of the hard to find parts from eBay.

Default 1994 BMC Kwikee Step Motor fix

Thanks for everyone's help in replacing my step motor. It's fixed. I don't think the bad motor I removed was the original part but I believe the steps themselves are. I was unable to match that motor even after making several phone calls to several suppliers. I therefore replaced the entire mechanism including the control unit with Kwikee kit #379145 for type "A" linkage available from Amazon for $284 complete. The mechanism and wiring installation instructions were simple and clear. The only glitch was that the old mechanical door switch (located on the hinge side door jam) had to be replaced with a magnetic proximity switch (supplied with the kit) in order for the new control unit to work. All of the original control unit logic is replicated by the new controller. The only difference in the step operation is that the the door has to be opened wider before the step will extend. This is a result of switching from a mechanical to a proximity door switch.
