Re: Amel - made Genoa Furler Bronze Spur Gear


Our goals are:
  1. To document and confirm the size of the Spur gear and document the other parts included in the Amel-sourced rebuild kit
  2. To find a machine shop that can:
    1. Duplicate the Bronze Spur Gear
    2. Sell & Ship the Spur Gear to Amel owners when ordered
At this time I am not sure that the steel worm gear was included in the kit, and I am not sure that the worm is needed in the kit because all of the worn parts I have seen are limited to bearings and the Spur Gear. I believe most of the other parts included in the Amel-sourced rebuild kit can be sourced by an Amel owner at various places local to the owner.

That sounds great - thanks for coordinating.
My understanding is the SM and SN furlers were identical except for 24v vs 12v motors. Can you (or others) confirm that?
Many thanks,
