I would replace those brushes, what do they cost $15 a piece?
It also looks like the gear (that the worm gear drives) is worn.
I'll check the pricing for the brushes. Philsboat on the AS site said they are about 1/3 used up. I really don't want to mess with them if I don't have to, those springs are under a lot of tension.
I checked into the wormgear (as I've since learned it's called). After carefully reviewing the price (!), I won't be replacing it this time around, unless it's completely shot. What do you think?
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
