Hi Phil,

Well I think that Bob was a real dumb As (bunny) for letting his rotor 
or rotator fill up with water. I doubt that condensation would have 
been enough to fill up the upper bell. He lives in Illinois not the 
tropics.  I can condemn him because he is a good friend of mine!

However I will go light on you because I don't know you. I have before 
me an original Cornell-Dubilier Electronics manual. It is titled CDR 
ROTOR Service Manual.  The Ham-m is titled the same. Can't locate an 
Alliance manual right not but I bet they call them ROTORS also.
So please check you facts then call Bob a dumb bunny for leaving his 
"rotor" upside down.
