Hi Dave, I saw that. My problem I hearing from a private reply is in the clutch. I also discovered  from a direct reply back to me there is an exploded view in the G-5400 manual.  See…..




Good ol FoxDelta saved the day!


I’m going to get back on it tomorrow morning and see if my G-5500 is close enough to the diagram to take apart. I’ll report back here to the group with my findings….

 Not sure if this will be any help to you or not.

I removed the rotor from the tower today and started working on the azimuth
rotor. When power is applied via left or right control the motor is running.
I carefully split the case and everything appears intact. Grease is still
good, no missing gear teeth, no metal shavings in bottom of housing. So the
problem is somewhere in the gearing, or mechanical control. I would like to
proceed further but have no  exploded view of the inside of the rotor. I
wouldn't want to proceed without some kind of service manual part
description view. Does anyone have anything that might help? Does anyone
have a clue, maybe had this same problem and fixed it?I already have the
useless Yaesu user manual..
