Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] In-mast furling motor 1988 Maramu


Hi Graham

My Santorin 1991 probably has the same units

But it’s not clear what the motors are .... probably a small truck starter motor but they were quite easy to overhaul and replace the brushes and bearings

Getting the bearing off the shaft required professional help from someone who had a hydraulic press as I recall

The gear box they drive is a standard bonfiglioli unit available here (NZ) from the company for about Us$300

Hi all,

Does anyone have specifications, wiring diagrams or mechanical drawings
for the in-mast furling motor that was installed in the Maramu c. 1988. 

Mine has failed and, despite efforts with brushes, I think it needs a
rebuild.  Any information, guidance or experience would be very welcome. 

Kind regards
