I have aquired a HAM-M rotator and I am looking for some information/help.

First, does anybody have the manual/schematics that they could 
scan/email/mail a copy to me (or know if they are online someplace)?

Second, I hooked it up and confirmed that it works, but because it had been 
up for a while I decided to open it up.  The bearings are dirty and the 
grease is old and 'gunky' so I want to clean up the bearings and the 
plastic bearing retainer and put in new grease.  Does anybody have a 
recommendation on what to use to clean up / remove the old grease form the 
bearing retainer?  Is there any particular type of grease I should use?

Last, is it possible to use one of the new (newer?) style control boxes ( 
brake release switch in between the CCW and CW buttons) instead of the 
small rotator with the switch on the bottom that you move left/right to rotate?

Thanks to all who respond.
