Hello Group: Eric and Robyn here on LIBBY, SM#196, 1997 build, sailing out of Los Angeles
Jib furler motor stopped working. Removed cover and found a handful of salt residue up to and in the brush sets. Confirmed power to motor and foil turning easily. Cleaned/vaccumed salt deposits then electrical cleaner and corrosionx.
Motor runs quiet and strong, back in business. Now looking for source for brush set (4) for the 24v motor. Any spec. plate is long gone and inquiries to SAV@Amel indicate the motor and parts are no longer supported. Does anyone happen to have a source for those brushes or anyone with extra spares willing to sell four? Regards and good sailing, Eric
