POTC ship mechanism problem - Solved

Hi guys, looking for inspiration on a problem with my POTC ship mechanism.
Basically, the ship will come up, but it won't go down. The sails are working fine, no problems.
When I play and sink the ship, the ship won't go down into the playfield. I hear a lot of whirring from the ship motor, but the ship won't move; sometimes it shudders a bit. I have to power the game off to get the ship motor to stop.
If I push the ship down into the playfield by hand and turn on the game, it comes up just fine, no problems.
When I run the ship test, the same thing happens. The ship won't go down, ship motor making lots of noises until I power the game down.
I did some searches, and it looks like the most likely causes are either a worn clutch, or a worn gear box, but I'm not sure how to decide which (and buying them just in case is a tad expensive). If anyone has any tips, I'd be much obliged!
