This may help...see message 11436, which reads, in part:
The gearbox is available. Pricing is $521 ea. FCA Charleston, SC and
delivery time is about 8 weeks.
The product would be available from the factory in France in 4 weeks if you wanted to air freight the item. It normally costs about $3.50 per kg.
If you want to proceed with an order, I can put you in touch with one of our distributors.

It appears that ou mainsail furler gearbox has a major problem under mtor it makes noises as of a collapsed bearing and is more or less seized and very difficult to turn using a winch handle. I have removed it from the mast but am having difficulty breaking into it. Can anyone offer advice please. It may be that I will require a replacement from Amel but would like to see what exactly has gone wrong in the gearbox. I have the earlier mainsail furler where the motor projects from the mast, similar to the SM2000.
