You don't say what your issues are.
All a rotor is , is a motor and some gears..and a brake. solenoid to operate the brake.
Take it apart on a table with a towel under it, in case the bearings fall out. they won't roll far on a towel.
Oil the motor, grease the bearings, clean any crud out of it.
?wire up a 8 pin molex connector to a short cable or jury rig it to your satisfaction.
depending on the case, maybe an 8 place barrier strip..
Get matching Molex connector if you use that.
Most common total failure of a rotor is the capacitor in the conrtoller goes bad so the motor wont run
as it has no control as to direction.
to get help and advice,, bring out some specifics as to you problem with it.

i will start with tearing it down . all i know is that it does not turn. The ham that gave it to me said it has been sitting for 10 years or so?
i will use a make shift plug and go from there . I found the manual on line, and the create co. is located in japan. thanks for the reply. wd4gxt
