Raymarine Linear Drive Type 1

Hope someone can help here as we battle with our Raymarine Autopilot and try to solve the issue.
Does anyone know how the ball screw is attached to the ram on a Raymarine Linear Drive-Type 1?. Mine seems to disengage and the ram just slides in and out like a bicycle pump until I turn it in a clockwise direction then it grips. I did get it working again by doing this but it soon disengaged again. Does anyone have detailed drawings of this linear drive ram assembly?
Many thanks in anticipation!

Autopilot msg "DRIVESTOP" Raymarine Linear Drive Type 2 in Technical Discussion Forum

Does the clutch engage when you put the autopilot in "auto"? Could be the brushes, like in the above link.


You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
