Autohelm 3000 spare parts or complete unit

Anybody out in the cruising land have an Autohelm 3000 or any spare parts for sale. I am looking for any spare / backup items since I'm not 100% confident in my Autohelm and plan to take off in a few weeks to the islands. I am currently in Oriental, NC.

Thanks!

Re: Autohelm 3000 spare parts or complete unit

In 15,000-miles of use (our 3000 steers 98% of the time) the only parts that have broken are:

One (1) drive belt (it got over tightened and broke within a day)
One (1) the cogged nose piece on the motor (the plastic pins that are driven by the motor sheared off at about 10,000-miles)

The belts are easy to find/buy, but the nose piece is a pretty rare item. Usually you have to buy a motor assembly to get the extra nose piece.

That's what you really need at a minimum for spares.

Oriental, Bridgeton and Morehead City all have second hand stores that might have what you need.

The belts and sometimes the nose piece can be found on E-Bay.
