It’s fixed!. So I dropped the retraction down in distance and upped the speed. It seemed to help slightly but the print was obviously still weak in those layers. After getting a good grip I was able to separate the print into 2 pieces with just my fingers so I knew the force of the machine itself would probably tear it apart instantly. I found a setting in Simplify3d under the advanced tab in the movement section called “Avoid crossing outline for travel movements”. When I unchecked this (not sure how it was checked to begin with) the prints came out flawless. I am now printing the last part, the final stepper mount. Now I just need to source a few more pieces and it’s assembly time.

Thanks for all the input and suggestions. Its always good to have another person troubleshoot with you. Fresh eyes can always see clearer.
