Hello group.
    The problem with the rotor has been fixed. Turns out the gears 
inside had frozen on their shafts. A little penetrant and easy 
persuasion got things running smoothly again. No parts, just time. This 
rotor sees intermittent use as its attached to my portable rig, and must 
sit outdoors.There was a little bit of water in the bottom of the case, 
as the drain hole was gummed up a bit. I filed it out a bit and 
regreased everything and she works like a charm again. Thanks to all for 
the replies and the help.
