Autohelm ST4000 Wheel pilot

Greetings all,

Looking for advise and suggestions.

Last weekend the Wheel Pilot (black model) would not disengage on my 34 foot sailboat. The lever would move but nothing would happen. Steering was difficult so I removed the wheel pilot from the helm while underway.

1. Are instructions or exploded diagrams available for this model?

2. Where would I find replacement parts?

3. Should I upgrade the wheel pilot? If so, which wheel pilot is a direct replacement. Sources? Prices? I do not want to swap out the control head or flux gate compass.

Thanks for your help.
