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.

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.

Good Luck.

it paid off.

I contacted the person that midlifesailor suggested. Not only has he already emailed me back, he had the part and slightly less than retail!

Nice post midlife and thanks.

Glad it worked out.

I eventually hope to upgrade my autopilot but its sure good to have a place to turn while I keep the existing one on life support.

autopilot interest

Hi noworries,

Did you get around to selling your autopilot? If not perhaps you will sell it to me?
Thanks, Thyme

autopilot query

Hi fellowsailers

This is my first post I just joined up today and my wife and I are planning to do a lot more coastal cruising around Nova Scotia and therefore need a reliable 3rd helmsman called auto.

We have a 37 oday center cockpit and our autohelm 3000 analog compass takes a surgeons hands to set up an often it goes off wandering within the hour.I need to get a user friendly autohelm within my limited budget and I like what I read about the autohelm st3000 and st4000 with push button controls. My boat loaded weighs16000 lbs and I am looking for advice as to what is my best choice for a secondhand autohelm? Does anyone have a good working used autohelm that will handle my 37 cc Oday. If not what is recommended for a new autohelm giving the best bang for the buck. I do want to do it right.

Appreciate your feedback
Ingramport sailor

If your motor is good, why not switch out the control head with a ST3000.
