I am sure there are many reasons why it's a bad idea to put a stepper motor/gearbox/clutch inside a tank pressurized with hydrogen, but all I can think of so far is hydrogen embrittlement of the metal components. What other risks/concerns are there? Sparking and explosion isn't a concern because there won't be any oxygen in or near the system.
