LOOKING FOR WHITLOCK/LEWMAR service manual

Hi I have a Whitlock rotary /chain drive autopilotunit. I want to tear it down and re-grease, inspect etc... but I cannot find any service information I understand that the gear carrier is a weak spot... (Parts, I can get through Whitlock, I got a new gear carrier before they become obsolete, but they don't have a service manual/diagrams available.)
Anybody have info on these?

Re: LOOKING FOR WHITLOCK/LEWMAR service manual

Navi2016, recently had to rebuild the bevelhead boxes in the steering for a Knonos 45 cat.
After much tearing out of hair, mainly because You probably know more about Whitlock than any present Lewmar staff, I managed to contact the Ex-Whitlock tech in UK who now does the servicing. A good man to know. I will PM you his info in prerefence to placing it here.
