Re: Furler motor to gearbox sm2000

I would have to agree with Bill,
To fix you furler it will probably take a new motor, and maybe a new gearbox. I would rebuild the old gear box and carry it as a spare. I carry a new spare motor, and a spare rebuilt gear box, ready to go in case of a problem. Someone mentioned that the new motors are a different diameter, and I found this out as well. I built up the diameter of the the motor where it attaches to the cover attachment with some good tape. Just about 3 to 4 times around the motor with some good tape and the cover attachment piece fit snugly on the motor. It was in one of my videos about the Main Sail of a Super Maramu.
