Autohelm 4000 wheel pilot mix&max
Hi all -
Outr1980s version Autohelm 4000 finally died. The wheel pilot unit has a plastic sproket that is ground to pulp....dead dead dead.
I was trying to find a replacement wheel pilot seeing as the control unit is just fine.
Closest I can find is an Autohelm ST4000 MKII wheel drive only on ebay.
Could I use this wheel drive and just wire it in to the existing ancient Autohelm 4000?
Or do I have to bite the bullet and purchase a whole new autohelm?
That gave me pause because its about 50% of the cost of a new X5 which would have a better "brain". In my case however, the boat is at the absolute upper limit recommended for the X5 so I'm looking into a below deck solution.
If I find I can't rationalize that much expense, my options are to try to replace the 4000 drive unit or maybe give the CPT Autopilot a try.
