Close call. Good question.
First of all look up ďship of Theseus ď.
. Iím not quite there. Although Slocumís Spray may have been.
And no not quite everything. The yaw shaft, slip rings, mounting, and associated wires are original. As are the rotor, shaft, and static windings. And one of the circlips.
This was the death of a thousand cuts over a few years.
I know the PO did work
on the unit as well. But not bad, I think itís over twenty years old now.
But the a overall cost for a fully rebuilt unit was still a lot less than new. And I now know the generator
Had I known three years ago that I would be in for all this I probably would have followed the same path. I enjoy the rebuilding.
