autohelm 6000 parts

My autohelm 6000 linear drive type a is nort working. I have traced the trouble down to an electromagnetic clutch. It is about the size of a hockeypuck. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement ?

Raymarine claim that there are no user maintainable parts within the linear drive - that way they dont have to maintain a spares back-up. The only solution is to try to find the manufacturer of the electro magnetic clutch. (or buy a complete replacement)

I have a used autohelm 6000 rotary drive that I plan to sell on ebay. I would thin k that the magnet is the same. It works but was sticking so I replaced it.

Linear Drive for type 1 Autohelm 6000

I have a problem with the the linear drive of an Autohelm 6000. The cog on the spline on the motor shaft keeps sliding down and then the drive belt slips off. There does not seem to be any way to stop the cog from moving.

Can anyone help
