Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Question regarding procedures for aligning engine on SM


Sorry, No I did not take any pictures. It is a pretty well a simple process, disconnect motor, raise it as mentioned, dismantle the support above the C drive and remove it (the C drive sits on the keel and will not move), undo the nuts on the Vetus mounts that secure to the frame (do NOT alter the adjustment nut beneath the frame), either lift the frame over the Vetus mount to remove the mount or dismantle the four pieces of the frame and remove, remove the Vetus mount, measure the distance of the exposed thread then wind down the adjustment nut of the NEW Vetus mount to show the same measurement of exposed thread as the old one, install the the new Vetus mount. Do the same for the remaining three then reassemble everything in reverse.

Kind Regards
