If it's a stepper motor it is probably just a cover over the connections to the coils. If it isn't a stepper, it might cover an optical encoder. In most printers the motors are steppers these days, it's easier to move the motor in known steps than spin it and try to stop it (...)

Mach3 is pretty straight on LPT. I would suggest you to please go through following steps to resolve your LPT issue.
1. Are you sure that your LPT port is in working condition. You may connect an external LPT printer to quickly test your LPT port.
2. Are you sure that you are looking at the right pin at LPT port? please see following p
