Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Main Sail Furling Motor Issue

I did the same rebuild of both gears. The manual furler is also the thrust bearing for the mainsail foil. It rusted to mush and almost seized up. The bearings are off the shelf wheel bearings....cost less than 20 USD. The trick to getting the bearings out is heat. I put the case in the oven heated to about 350F and the big bearing pops right out.
Seals are the same off the shelf parts ...
I think I posted the part numbers on the forum. If you cannot find the post I will send you a list.
