Alex,
And press it firmly in. It will be about 1-2mm
below the outside housing of the bow thruster.

Good morning Bill,



I think this was my mistake... I forgot to put silicone RTV
around the outside of the sea...

Yes, 0.3l, but I saw no mention of

using Silicone RTV around the outside of the seal...you

should...because the seal does not fit as good as I
would

like to the bow thruster housing...AND...be sure you
have

pushed the seal inward all the way. If you have pushed
it

all the way, it will be slightly lower than the outside
of

the housing.

I have found that these two things will provide

a good seal.

Ian,I recall the oil should

be 90 weight gear oil and about 0.3 liters of

oilFair

Thruster oil seal  

Hi All,    

              When we

hauled Pen Azen in March I noticed that the oil seal
where

the bow thruster prop entered the gear box was leaking,

gently.  I changed the seal. The

only seal I could get at short notice in Corfu
didn't

have a stainless spring, but that should not have
mattered

as the spring faces inwards and is bathed in oil all the

time. However, when hauling again

in July I noticed the same

weeping.  I now have

a rather better quality seal as a replacement, but it

occurs to me that I may have over filled the leg with

oil. From memory, the volume of

oil should be 0.9 litres and the type of oil SAE 90, or
what

you would use in an outboard gear

box. Is my memory correct

? Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM

302, Preveza,

Greece
