My out haul line is very very tight (bar tight)do you know if this is acceptable?
Kind regards Paul - Fortuna II 55/17

The outhaul line should be tight with no deflection in the line.
I believe the reason that loosening it helped reduce the amps was because the bearings need replacing...reducing side pressure to the axel of a failing bearing will usually allow the easing of the binding pressure.
A loose outhaul line will allow some slippage through the gearbox line tender sheave on most Amels, although I have yet to see this happen on a 55, which has a different sheave than a SM or 54.

Loosen the spectra lines that attach the line to the car
