I'll be installing a new Yaesu G-2800 rotor next week to replace a 
broken G-1000. The rotor had been making noise before it finally stopped 
turning so it's most likely mechanical failure. The mast pin did not 
shear, but there is heavy wear.

I was thinking of an alternative to pinning to avoid another expensive 
failure; some sort of rubber material to grip the mast. The problem is 
that you can't apply much torque to the aluminum clamps so I'm not sure 
if it will hold. What's really needed is a steel set of replacement clamps.

So, is anyone using a Yaesu G-2800 without a pin?
