Autohelm 4000 - parts source???
« on: November 22, 2016, 06:06:19 AM »

I have unsuccessfully searched for some replacement planet gears for the gearbox in my autohelm 4000.   If anyone knows of a source or has an old unit they are willing to part out, please let me know.

Jim

Thanks for the referral.  I worked closely with the owner of the company and he used a 3 d printer to fabricate the very small gears I needed.   I just received the gears, reassembled the unit and they appear to fit well.   I will be reinstalling the unit on the boat and will try it out on the hard.   

If anyone else needs mechanical parts for their no-longer-supported autohelm 4000, check them out.
