Autohelm st4000 wheel pilot

Bought a 29 Watkins over the summer and it came equipped with the st4000. I knew when I bought the boat it needed work, the main problem with it is the wheel drive assembly, everything else seems fine. It's been in the weather for God knows how long and the UV did its magic, I disassembled it and it has a few broken bearing mounts rendering the housing useless. Looking to replace the wheel drive assembly, does anybody know where to find one?

I see them on Ebay all the time. Sometimes they are listed not working maybe you could get a broken one cheap and put the parts together to get going.

I bought another from raymarine, with motor. Not sure if they discontinued it or what but they are becoming hard to find.

I've got an extra one, actually two extra since I got rid of the wheel. Have to decide on a price but probably half what a new one would cost.
