I just took down my Yaesu 5500 rotator arter being fitted for a year and a 
half because of a pot feedback problems which is well docuemented here on 
list. I was supprised though to find the bearings in both rotators to be 
rusty. The top set in the azimuth were the only ones that do not require 
replacement. I have ordered stainless steel bearings at 22 pence each which 
works out at about £25 or $45 total so it's worth taking that rotator down 
and checking it before letting the bearings rust out!
