Not being picky or anything, but if those two brown bits are the port locations and those are the important things that make the motor go - why are they such different sizes? or am I missing something obvious?

It does look a little damp in there - mine when I shine a torch down it is pretty much dry as a bone inside - which is probably a little to do with the 50:1..
