See Improve Hook Cable Guide.   This page shows how to add a guide spanner to keep the hook string between guide posts.  That helps keep the string on the pulley.  Lionel's TMCC 6-82097 - Bucyrus-Erie Command Control Gantry Crane has a similar spanner/guard.

See Build a Replacement Controller.   The original controller plastic Lever Retaining Springs quit "springing" levers.  The replacement controller's momentary switches are more reliable.
