Re: wheel removal

Mine had nothing except the 2 screws holding it on but still needed a small pick to pry under the edges to remove it.

Subject: [AmelYachtOwners] wheel removal


I am planning to take the wheel,  the  main furling gearbox, and the outhaul gearbox off of Kimberlite and have them powder coated . Then the wheel will have new leather installed. The Amel plate in the center of the wheel plate is not cooperating. I believe the plate is stainless and the wheel is aluminum , I think galvanic corrosion is my problem.

Beside removing the 2 screws from the Amel plate in the center of the wheel, is there some trick to remove the plate?.
