Liquid gasket pro seal would probably do the trick.

Subject: [amsat-bb] G-5500 frozen

For those waiting for the on going rotor drama at the LRD compound. Tipped
tower over, removed all antennas, rotor etc. took in shop opened case, one
big ice cube inside. The gears can not move through ice! I will clean it up,
dry it out, does anyone have any experience with sealing this thing up,
making gasket etc ? It is the Yaesu G-5500 elevation rotor. It does rain
here a bit (Seattle) hihi
