One other difference is you'll have to grind
off the cooling fins on the Bonfiglioli if using it for the

For those of you
who have more experiences with Amel's of different
vintages... are there fitting differences between
the Leroy Somer and Bonfiglioli gearboxes used on
the Mainmast furling system?
Are they interchangeable?
Interchangeable with modifications? Or just too
