Re: [Amel] Filter Eau Mer Puisard Sensor (Sea Chest Filter Obstruction Sensor)
Hi Eric, thanks for your reply.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
I de-mounted the S shaped fitting at the top of the hose (mostly to gain easy access) and took the sensor off, lowered the S fitting and hose to the level of the sea chest to verify that sea water emerged and thus verified that the line was patent. I applied suction to the base of the sensor initially by sucking on it with my mouth and then subsequently by applying suction with a small hand pump while measuring continuity with my ohmmeter. No amount of vacuum would cause the sensor to achieve contact.
You used the word "hoses" (plural). Mine only has one hose, that comes off just outside the sea chest and runs vertically alongside the fuel tank to a small S shaped fitting and bracket that is screwed to the fuel tank wood trim. Wish I had a picture as it would be worth a thousand words.
When Maud gets back to me I will post more.
