Raymarine Autopilot Brushes

Anyone know where to get brushes for a raymarine st6000 aouto pilot. part# NO34 type 2 motor brushes, ordered some from raymarine 8 months ago, apparently out of stock for who knows how long. I am totally screwed without replacements. Current ones have about 8000 miles on them and am doing alot of singlehanded sailing. There has to be some somewhere, hopefully. Am in the bvi.

Hello UB1!

I would meausere the old ones and search based on the size.
I had the same problem regarding an old Robertsson and I did find an other source than the original retailer.

Good luck

You might be surprised what you can find at a halfway decent hardware store.
Do they have a good one in the BVI's?
