Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Plastic cover boom gearbox engine

HI All. I recently had to replace both gearboxes on my Super Maramu and had both Cima motors refurbished. The secret to the white plastic sock is heat. You can use a hair drier or better yet a heat gun and warm it up. It then turns semi pliable and will slip on or off with no damage from prying. Good Luck.

On my Maramu #258, the 12 volt main mast furler motors are made by Cima in Italy, but are no longer available. Best to keep fixing what you have. Amel can supply a LeRoy Sommers replacement, if needed.
The Bonfiglioli gearboxes actually call for gear oil, not grease, but I still think the grease nipple is a good idea.
Bonfiglioli gearboxes are easily available from Drivetech Automation in Sunrise Florida. Contact Mitch Silverman at "msilverman at "drivetechonline" dot "com". He is very responsive.
s/v Have Fun!
