Re: [Amel] Loosing oil from Furler Genua
Hello Casper and Maud,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Sorry to hear about your furler problem. We have not had any leaking from Genua furler and I do not believe that leaking is normal; seems a seal has failed. On our SM 72 there is not a grease fitting. When we replaced our main furler motor, we used a silicone based grease on the gearing and expect that is good for all the gearing systems except for the windlass which uses oil. How has your trip been going?
Regards, Bill and Trudy Leonore of Sark

Subject: [Amel] Loosing oil from Furler Genua
I am loosing oil (greece) from the bottom of the electric furler of the Genua.
Is this a normal thing?
I see there is a nipple on top where I could refill. Does someone know if that is the solution and if so what should I put in there?
