Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] coupling bolts


Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi, to move the engine needs no lifting. Simply undo the four bolts attaching the engine to the angle iron engine bed, undo the nuts on the coupler and the engine easily slides back. I used a piece of 2 x 3 (75 x 50mm) timber as a lever.

The engine has to be
moved back from the transmission. Undo engine mounts and
hoist with mizzen halyard . The cockpit cover lifters will
have to be removed to allow the cover to open all the way.
The flex coupling then can be removed. It is held in place
by a shaft key. This may take some effort as it may be
frozen on the shaft. Penetrating oil and a steel wedge will
help loosen the flex coupling. Once off then a new bolt can
be used. I believe the bolts are hardened steel (Black).

Yacht Owners] coupling bolts
















 










I have a 1998 Amel 53
Supermaramu and discovered that one of the 4 coupling bolts
that attach the engine outdrive to the transmission has
broken off.  I believe this was probably caused by
engine/transmission malalignment, but not sure.  Meantime,
I tried to see if there was an easy way to install a new
bolt, but do not see a way to do so.  Any assistance would
be appreciated.
