Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hydraulic Shaft Brake Actuator Overhaul Parts

The only thing I had to replace on the actuator was the spring which Amel had in stock.

I think you just need an “O” ring.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hydraulic Shaft Brake Actuator Overhaul Parts



I have a slight weep of hydraulic fluid coming from around the end disc of the hydraulic shaft brake actuator (the end that has the adjusting bolt on it).  I am guessing it just needs a new o-ring but I haven't started the process yet.  Functionally it is fine.  


Anyone have a diagram of the internal workings of the actuator and more specifically specifications for the internal o-rings, gaskets, or other parts.  Anyone know if Amel has a "kit" with applicable replacement parts?  


[I see that Kimberlite attempted to post a diagram but can't find it.  Eric, if you have it and could email it to me at garysilver at mac dot com   I would appreciate it.]
