Raymarine Autohelm/Pilot ST4000

The motor on my Raymarine ST4000 is shot. Raymarine does not have this motor in stock any more nor will they make anymore. So several questions:
  1. Will a "newer" motor work? And if so what is the new part number?
  2. If a "newer" motor will not work, does anyone one know of a source for a motor for this unit? Raymarine part # is N012, retails for $42.00
  3. When I called Raymarine, their options were to buy a new wheel assemble ($600 ish) or try to find someone with NOS of the original motor. Anyone have other ideas?

I looked on eBay already.
