Re: Outhaul noise

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS

Hi Joerg, When we bought Ocean Pearl in 2008 she had that screeching. It was caused by dried up grease in the gearbox. I stripped them, cleaned out the old grease repacked them with new. I dont remember if the bearings needed replacing but I guess so as they would have been the source of the screech. That was when I installed grease nipples so I would never have that problem again. I think many owners have followed suit since.
Kind Regards

Thanks everyone for the advice.  I've had the tight outhaul line problem in the past and the current issue is different.  i've taken off the outhaul line completely and when operating the motor, the screeching noise is still there albeit somewhat attenuated because there is no load at all.  Does anyone have a technical drawing of the motor assembly or some good photographs?  It sounds like either there's no grease on one of the bearings or a bearing is damaged.  Many thanks!  Joerg
