Is it a NEMA 23 Stepper or NEMA 17 stepper. These are very
standardized and are produced in very large quantities. Makes them
really cheap to replace.

Yes, for that reason, I have never taken steppers apart. If they are
rough for any reason, I would just order a new one from Amazon and
replace it. I use steppers for robotics. I have never seen ...

Are you going to take apart the failed servo and do any kind of
failure analysis? If not, I would be willing to open and take a look.
I too am using the same servo's. 10 years of flying and 1400 h ...

I grab the center metal support with my inboard hand and work the t-handle with the outboard hand.  Moving the T-Handle to the inside does not allow the use of the support to pull forward.
