ST4000 wheel pilot upgrade

DUH! Raymarine has a upgrade for the wheel drive only for the ST4000! it's way cheaper then a whole new system. Has anyone done this upgrade? the one that came with my boat had a jury rigged motor drive which we chucked out.
I was about ready to bolt a small teak block to the cockpit floor and mount the motor that way.
thanks all
Denise

What's involved in this upgrade? I had a 4000 on my boat, but installed the whole S1 package, as none of the previous parts where usuable with the new system. 4000+ is compatible with the S1, according to the install manual, but not the 4000.

(btw, there is an O'Day30 right next to me, and his jib sheets go through the genoa cars, then to cheek blocks near the stern, then the winches.)

Currently back in New Bern, NC

PB thanks

I was experimenting with jibsheet locations yesterday. I tried them back to the cheek blocks and it seemed like an awful long reverse route for the sheet. I put a block on the track about a ft behind the winch and it looks right but rubs on the coaming.
I don't know whats involved with the upgrade which is why I posted it.
fair winds!
