If you indeed are showing dropping brake fluid reservoir levels, and the area under the MC is wet, I agree with getting a rebuilt MC. I've used rebuilt MC's over the years and never had a problem. ...

And yes, if you are pulling rotors use those 8mm threaded holes to pop off the rotor - or you'll be...

So if you have the assembly removed, apply 5 V DC to the motor and see if it powers up. If it does, then you need to figure out why it isn't getting power (sorry for being Mr. Obvious here).
