FDR14127.. the WP5000 is a wheel pilot.

I had found one on craigs list that i got excited about but the seller never got back to me.
There is no way that you could adapt/convert a TP5000 to a WP5000. Very different animal indeed.

I'll answer your PM later on but in short the only part of mine that is seemingly unserviceable or at least in some way faulty is the compass. I did have some trouble with belt slipping but after cleaning up and servicing the wheel attachment itself it seemed to be OK the last time I used it. Unfortunately the fluxgate went insane about that time and I've not had it operating since. I have spare belts.
