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.
