[amsat-bb] G5500 Azimuth rotor problem - more

After I pulled the motor off the gear housing the motor runs in both 
directions.  But, when I manually rotate the large white nylon gear that the 
motor drives that gear binds once every revolution.  So, it appears that 
nylon gear is worn and needs to be replaced.  Anyone have a part number? 
Couldn't find the replacement parts section of the Yaesu web page, if one 

Also, I've lost the pictures I took of my last azimuth rotor repair 
adventure, so if anyone has some pictures and notes posted somewhere, please 
pass along the link.
