Determining torque required by a motor using motion analysis?

Can I run my set-up by anyone? It would be greatly appreciated as I've never done a motion analysis before. What I've done is made a rough mock-up of an assembly as one part in order to do a motion analysis because when I was trying to use the subassembly, it would not rotate the way I wanted. When performing a motion analysis, I get a resulting torque but I'm not sure if Solidworks some how uses the moment of inertia, weight of the part, etc. without me specifically assigning a force for it? Thanks for any advice.


-The parts and assembly should be attached.
