    Are these questions or statements? Because they do not look like questions.

    Replacing components on a perpetual motion machine will likely not be successful & possibly even dangerous.

    and...yes? Which is the problem facing all current designs for perpetual motion machines.

    1. Probably not. If parts are breaking or wearing out, energy is being lost by the system, so it won't be perpetual motion.

    2. Perpetual motion requires that the system maintains motion without energy input and without losing energy to the environment. If it's putting out any energy, the motion won't be perpetual.
