Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Suddenly screaming noise from the bowthruster and not moving the prop anymore


There are 2 pins that must be installed to keep the gear from turning on the propeller axel. 

I am traveling today. I will try to upload a drawing later today. 

Alex on Nikimat had exactly this issue when he rebuilt the lower unit. I think the gear is shipped from Amel without the holes for the pins in the gear wheel. 

More later when I get home.

Mine also turns by hand on the Santorin. Maybe it’s a sign that previously the bearings wear binding quite tightly?
