2-3-2 Motor

I got this motor setup out of a brand new Linear Garage Door Opener.
The opener is rated at 1/2 Hp and can lift up to a 18 foot x 7 foot garage door.
It's more than enough to move the legs.
It already has limit switches built into the drive system.
All I need is to locate another one for the other outer leg.
