The 600 model was original KenPro (Japan), circa 1980s.

Yaesu purchased the KenPro rotator product line in early 1990s (about 20 years ago now).
This specific model was largely sold in Europe and Asia -- not North America (due to HyGain/CDE and Alliance mfg. here).  Yaesu NO LONGER sells this model.  
For parts, diagrams or technical information contact your regional/country Vertex/Yaesu dealers!

SOME parts are still used on current models, rest are no longer mfg.  This means searching European and Asia dealers for parts OR talking to you local machine shops (automotive, Formula 1 race shop).

UKW-Berichte, Telecommunications (German) web site is one example of available parts!

Internal Gear for KR-600 is no longer available from UKW-Berichte

Some amateurs have web pages with pictures of rebuild of KenPro/Yaesu rotators.

hi thanks for replying,I have been told that the part is no longer made as it is an old rotator,gettin someone to make one here in Ireland would probably involve swapping the part for my house so I ordered a new Yaesu 1000 rotator today,thanks again
