I am in the process of refurbishing a two-inch Telrex rotator that has given 
over 30 years of reliable service.  It has been turning a 4-element 20 meter 
beam on a 57 foot boom and a 4-element 15 meter beam on a 35 foot boom, on a 
three inch moly mast.  I have made a coupling to convert the three inch mast 
down to a two-inch mast to go throught the rotator, but that coupling has 
been the source of "rotator slop" and ultimately wear on the mast clamps.  I 
have been toying with the idea of converting the rotator to a three-inch 
rotator by replacing the rotating tube and bearing.   So, I was wondering if 
anyone has a "dead" three-inch Telrex lying around?  I am specifically 
interested in the rotating tube with the sprocket and the bearing upon which 
it it sits and rotates (I don't need the motor or gearing).  Thanks for any 
help.  73  Saul  K2XA  Albany, NY
