Purchase the plastic lift lever arm first. Remove motor from pedestal with the 4x large Philips head screws underneath the back of the motor housing. Note which way around the lever is on the shaft (take a photo is a safe way) Remove split pin with some pliers, don't wreck it as you will need to re-use it. Punch out the roll pin that locates the plastic lever to the shaft. Fit the new plastic arm CORRECTLY. Punch the roll pin back where it belongs, making sure it is evenly engaged as too far in or out will make it foul. Put the rod back thru the lever and split pin it again. Check operation before you put the motor back on.
It is not a good idea to modify anything in the unit to make part(s)
designed for another model fit. The KT and KP models have different
part numbers for the motor. I still don't understand why do you have to
change motor in the first place, just because the Worm Gear Follower
has to be replaced. Something is telling me, you have just purchased
the wrong part (Follower). The KT2651x is similar to the KP26xxx
latest models and the Worm Gear does not come with the Follower.
(i.e. they are 2 different distinct parts)

On each side of the Motor Housing(1) is the large black Brush Motor
Cap(23). Each Carbon Brush(19) is keyed (one corner is not square)
and is designed to go into the Motor Housing slot but only one way.
Each Carbon Brush must make contact with the Motor Coils. The
motor will not turn if one or both does not come in contact with the coils.
If the brushes are too worn out, of course they won't touch the coils
neither and your motor will not run. You can purchased new brushes
on Ebay if they need to be replaced.
Those are the two Motor carbon Brushes. Without them, the motor
would not run at all. Sooner or later, they will become so worn out
that the mixer will stop running. And when it does, don't be alarmed.
You simply purchase new ones for it. To see what they look like,
Go on Ebay & search for Kitchenaid Motor Brush*. They are keyed so
there is only one proper way to insert them into the motor housing.
If either or both brushes do not make contact with the motor coils,
the motor will not run.
below is a very nice pictorial of your motor .. you could have a burned segment in the comutater or more likely worn brushes. parts are also available from this site. the site may be slow responding so be patient ..
