Hi Tim

Is the manual that you downloaded the Instruction Manual G-5500?  If so,
this is like a user manual.  I have the original one that came with my unit.
 It doesn't provide the technical service type information.  I need drawings
of the internal guts within the EL/AZ rotators and part numbers so that I
can request specific parts.  

If I can change the subject for a minute. There are two adjustments (Out
Voltage Adj) on the back of the G-5500 controller that are not mentioned in
the Instruction Manual.  If you call Yaesu, they advise that these are
intended to be used only with their GS-232A Computer Control Interface. 
When I was working with Pablo EA4TX, who sells an excellent RCI-SE rotator
interface, these mysterious adjustments were important.  I also found a
GS-232A Owners Manual so that I could understand more about these two
adjustments.  I have a FT-847 with it's operating manual.  Recently, I
needed a technical service manual to fix a couple small items that would
have cost more to ship, parts and labor.  Guess what, I found on the
Internet the Technical Supplement for the Yaesu FT-847 HF & V/UHF Band
Transceiver  that I didn't know existed.  This was not on the Yaesu Internet
site. These manuals are intended for the service people.   

If someone has the technical service type manual for the G-5500 rotator,
this would be fantastic to share others.    

Thank you.
