My HyGain Tailtwister has been in the tower for 18 years now and it is showing 
some signs of
needing a little TLC.  Sometimes when I try to rotate the beam it wont move at 
all, but if I turn it the opposite direction for a wee bit,
then go back in the original direction, it works fine.  I am planning on taking 
her down and doing an overhaul.  I have been searching
the archives and found a referral to this webpage for an overview of how to do 
the overhaul     I am going to order 
new bearings, races, potentiometer, and what ever else
that I can find that could be replaced. I'd like it to hold up for another 18 
years, hihi.   I understand that the parts are available from MFJ now.  
If you have overhauled a HyGain rotor and can throw me some words of advice  it 
would be appreciated.  Never overhauled a rotor
before but it looks to be not that difficult.
