Howdy gang:

Well, we're in the middle of a BIG wind storm (thank God for crank up 
towers) so I though would do some maintenance here.  I took an old AR-40 
rotor apart that is not working right and found some bad gears.  The ring 
gear has two spots where the teeth are gone, and the cluster of 3 gears 
that drive the ring gear is worn out.  My question is, does anyone have 
any idea how much those gears cost, and is it even worth it to fix a 
AR-40?  I want to use it to turn a little 2 element 15 meter beam on a 
mast.  Thanks and 73
