Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Size of Vetus Waterlock on 7kW Onan

Derick Gates SM2K #400 Brava

Bill Rouse sent me a personal email (he does not have a lot of internet access currently) telling me that the Onan uses the Vetus Waterlock type LP50.  However he also pointed out that the Onan has a temperature sensor and automatic cutoff - so maybe a spare waterlock for the Onan is not as necessary as for the Yanmar.


I think I will just get a spare waterlock for the Yanmar.  


Eric, getting a Yanmar waterlock constructed from metal sounds intriguing.  What did you use - stainless steel?  Any chance that your source would make more of them?  Given how often impellers fail, I imagine it would be cost effective.  Even the Vetus plastic ones are not cheap.
