Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Oil Change or addition for Mango furler gearbox

Hi Alan,

AMEL recommends silicon high temperature grease which they sell at high
cost. I have used a Castrol very heavy grease in the past which was OK
but have found Alvenia (I hope that spelling is right) a pourable low
temperature grease to be better. I think it is made by Shell. It is
not expensive and fills both the upper chamber (accessed through the
rectangular side plate) and the lower chamber (accessed through the round
bottom plate). It can be topped off with a funnel through the top filler
hole. I don't think it is advisable to mix different types of
grease.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Oil Change or addition for Mango furler gearbox








I would like to add
oil to the gear box the fib furler on my Mango

#62. I don't have any documentation. Does anyone have experience

and/or documentation for this? I'm guessing that I can just add 90W

gear oil, but the existing oil almost looks like grease and maybe

should be changed.
