Finally dug through my Yaesu receipts to get the AZ pot info from this past
April.  At that time, the part number was S8101678, "Pot. 500 Ohm(new). 
Price, including shipping, was $20.51.  This pot doesn't have the wire from
the wiper.

Also, while I had the azimuth rotor disassembled, I installed a thermal
switch mounted against the motor windings. The "Thermal Circuit Protector,
75C" is All Electronics part number THSW-75 and was $1.00 (less shipping). 
When I next have to open the elevation rotor I'll install one there, too.
