Welcome to Cloudy Nights. I don't know the answer to your questions but if no one else does here, perhaps you can try the CG5 Yahoo Group. Good luck.

I just did a motor replacement on my CG-5 AGT. The encoder comes with it as does the wires with a connector. My new motor's connector was not keyed so you need to make sure to plug it in the same way as the old one. The motor is $33 including shipping form Celestron and takes about 2 weeks to get.
