Don't break anything off!!  If my memory serves me correctly, you have to 
'eye' up the alignment of the motor perfectly before you insert it.  The 
tough part is that you can't adjust the motor once it's in, as you will 
detach the armature cover.  The position of the motor is important because 
the hole in the armature cover must line up with the cooling hose that 
comes from the birdcage as well as rest firmly on the motor mounts.  Also, 
doesn't the tab/slot prevent the motor from slipping when in use?
