    I have a G450a Yaesu rotator. Everything works great except for the indicator. Any suggestion where to look

    Yaesu Rotor

    Yes...most rotors have a pot inside which provides graduated resistance to
    make the direction indicator needle work.
    Chances are good that's what's wrong with yours. If you decide to disassemble the rotor to check that pot do your dis-assembly inside a cardboard box or plastic storage tub. It is often the case that ball bearings go everywhere when the case is pulled apart.
    I have heard bad stories about Yaesu rotor support ans even worse stories about getting parts and/or schematics. You might want to call or email Yaesu before you start the project. I don't believe the domestic rotor repair guys (Norm's et al) will work on Yaesu rotors. But it can't hurt to ask.
    Good luck

    schematic

    Jim,
    I sent an Email (QRZ address) with the schematic...... later sent another with a possible cause. Hope the fix is something minor. :)
