Re: AMEL 54 main furler


Hi Ian,


Appreciate your input; especially reminded me of the old cloth. Bill ROUSE has seen the carnage on deck when a local “mechanic” removed the outhaul motor and gear box. It took me months to get the stains out and even then I still had spots which finally disappeared when professionals polished everything above the waterline.


Best Regards Teun

try the mallet Bill suggested. 

Mine played up in Antigua last year. 
If someone stands near the solenoids, you will hear them click if they are working. If they are power is going to the motor. My motor responded with a gentle tap. The problem was the brushes sticking in their guides because of carbon dust. A good clean sorted it out. But make sure you surround the motor with an old cloth. Carbon dust and a bit of water make a nice mess if the deck.
