Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SIPHON BREAK USING A VENTED LOOP -RAW WATER ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM
Dear Alexander,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Many thanks for your email, very interesting thank you. Was this an original Amel installation on your boat?
One question, I don´t see a breathing (venting) valve on either loops. Can it work that way?
I enjoy very much your very orderly way of describing and documenting your work onboard. Very useful indeed.

Good afternoon Alex,
Here is a picture of the anti- siphon on my vessel, I have the Volvo TMD 22 P http://www.nikimat.com/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses/volvo_tmd22p_missing_hoses_4.jpg
Don’t look at the arrows, they are for something else.
The BIG black hose is the exhaust.
Behind it is a yellow/black hose going to the top of the picture to a metallic half circle, that is the anti- siphon.
I will also sent you directly via email a page of the SM2K Owner Manual showing the Yanmar anti- siphon.
Let me know if you receive it.

afternoon, does anyone have
images or a diagram of an anti- siphon installation on the raw water side of the engine cooling system? I am considering this step in addition to a few others to avoid water backing into the engine exhaust system on the Yanmar 4JH4-HTE (repowered) on our Older Maramu.
