Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: bow thruster service. Problem


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Bill,

Without Gary Silver and your help, I could not have done it. So first a big thank to both of you!

I will need to improve it, as I did not show the replacement of the 2 foam seals on the bow thruster foot.
Also I should cut it in sections, to make it more low bandwidth friendly…

Also, the last time, it was much easier to add the bearings.

I just added the new specifications on the neoprene foam seal and the seal.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
Everyone should download the
fantastic photo display of the bow thruster overhaul that
you provide at http://nikimat.com/bow_thruster_overhaul.html It
is the best! Perfect!
Also,
regarding your parts list. Amel has changed the foam seals
to all 3 seals being Neoprene foam seal 110x60. The Natural
Foam that was used inside is now Neoprene foam. You may want
to update your parts list to reflect this
change.
Thanks,

Glad you got it out.



Yes the oil is SAE 90

The email is: sav@amel.fr



If I may suggest, purchase spare foam seals, seals, nylon
bolt, hubs,, stainless pin, etc.

Heroes what I carry on:

Here are pictures I took of the overhaul procedure written
by Gary Silver and notes from Bill Rouse.

Thanks for your suggestions. Finally the foot is

out!!!!!!I used a chain wrench, a hammer, Amel tool and
the

help of a mechanic. Now I have to change the oil
(SAE90????)

and 3 new neoprene washers. Who should I order the 3
foam

seals? Does anyone have the email address  of Amel AV

France?
