EM200 USDII Slewing Problem

Anyone still using the older EM200 USDII mount and powering it with 24V? I note that when slewing the mount in RA the mount will move without issue in one direction but when reversing the motor ramps up but then cuts out. This happens when the counter-weight shaft is in the 6 o'clock position. Anyone come across this problem before?

Can you even get replacement motors for these older mounts anymore?
