Talking Carefree Over Door Awning repair

I found several threads of the repair of the Carefree over door Marquis awning. A vague description in one of using a pulley to fabricate a new drive head. Here are the pictures of how it looks. Went together really easy. Only out about $8 instead of $100-$150 for a new motor. in my case the motor still worked, it just destroyed the drive gear assembly.
2" pulley sheave with 1/2" arbor. I ground down the remaining 'fins' or gear teeth so that the pulley fit over the shaft. Drill a small hole to accept the set screw (I got another set screw slightly longer than the one that came with the pulley).
Then took a round bastard file and files the notches in the side to fit the inside of the aluminum tube.
The most tedious part was re-setting he limits on the motor.

I also took the time to look at my main awning for possible stripping of that hub. Darned glad I did! It was nearly stripped. It now has the roll pin repair installed!

Something to keep in mind regarding the large awning if the drive end were to go bad you can take the one off the opposite end and use it as it's suppose to be identical.
