> Is anyone using the now defunct Hygain HD-73 rotator??

Actually I think it was Alliance that made the HD-73, unless I'm 
thinking of something else. If that's the one, I'd say don't insult 
Hy-Gain with any association with that rotor.

I had several people locally inquire about them when I was doing 
tower work, primarily because they were about half the price of any 
CDE-style rotor. They claimed reasonable braking and turning 
capabilities, but every one I saw installed with a ham antenna on it 
broke, consequently I always discouraged them.

Sorry I can't help you with your parts dilemma, but good luck as your 
stack grows; you will be getting a new rotor.
