Bryant error code 33 any ideas?

Bryant plus 80 furnance. Error code 33. Never goes to 13
Furnance turns on for about 3 mins of heat than kicks off.
1. Took blower motor out (cleaned, man it was nasty)
2. Checked graphite ignitor for cracks (nothing)
3. Filters (all clean)
4. Took out high limit switch tapped it just in case it was stuck
5. Bypassed limit switch (still error 33)
6. checked fuse on board (good)
7. check for loose wires (good there also)
8. Do notice after it kicks to 33 that motor is humming.

I can reset all night every 3 mins to try to get warm, but that may get boring.

I'm notsure what code 33 is it should have abreakdown of the codes in the housing somewhere. It sounds as though you blower motor is going out, and it's tripping on high heat safety.

Well today I decided to check to see if my blower motor was even working. I turned thermostat off and turned on the fan only. Nothing kicked on all i heard was humming. Same as when your capacitor craps out on your a/c unit.It will hum but not start.
I unplugged, reach in there and spun the squirl cage or (blower fan) plugged back in and it took off. Then to rule out the high limit, I wired them together to bypass and low and behold it stayed on and never cut out. I did noticed though that the blower stopped.... So im assuming my high limit is working and over heating from the blower cause it getting to hot.
COULD MY CAPACITOR BE BAD? I have like a white mark on the top of the capacitor so not sure if its pointing to bad or not..
