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:
- Will a "newer" motor work? And if so what is the new part number?
- 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
- 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.
Look on eBay again and find a seller called Kodiakjack99. Contact him and ask if he has the part you need. He purchased a stock of NOS Autohelm stuff and only advertises a portion of what he has available on Ebay.
No relation other than a satisfied customer. He supplied me with a replacement receptical for my AH4000 when a guest accidently snapped mine off, and just recently (still sitting in the box at home) a replacement "brain" for my 4000. Neither item was listed on ebay.
I found out about him through an ealier post here on SN and he has been very accomodating and helpful.
