Unfortunately I am travelling and will not be back at the boat for a few weeks.

Could someone else on the forum perhaps help Eric with this?

Eric,

 

I will be returning to Brava on Feb 28th, and can take the pictures you want if no one else gets to it sooner.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: SV Libby and the Blueplanet Odyssey

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Colin,

In 2011 we were in Cochin, India when we decided that the risks in the IO, GoA, and Southern Red Sea were too high. We put together the first of many transport ships to the Med from that area. I was unsuccessful in convincing Scott Adams (QUEST) to join our transport ship. 10 days later Scott was dead along with his wife and two crew. I prepared information and charts that were used by the US Congress to evaluate the situation.

Since that time almost all commercial ships have armed security and the last pleasure yacht to transit the area did so in 2011. In 2011, ING and a Danish family and crew were captured and released about a year later after their government paid $3 million to Somali pirates. BTW, we were rafted to ING in Sri Lanka and got to know them before they were captured. Unfortunately, their release placed a $3 million price tag on any yacht traveling that area. This past few weeks we have seen the situation deteriorate in Yemen. It is very difficult to avoid Yemen on this route.

I really don't believe you will see any knowledgeable person transit this area for many years, and there is no evidence that things will get better. Don't be fooled by the lack of data on yacht attacks in this area.

Email me any time for questions and more information.

Hi Terry & Dena

From all of us on the forum wishing you guys a fantastic trip on the Blueplanet Odyssey. Nice to see Amel represented there for a good cause. MV Island Pearl II would also have liked to join that particular trip, if they were still plan to go through the Suez canal route safely by then, but we are still some years off being free to cruise. Our current aim is to join the 2nd half of the 2016/7 World ARC from Australia to St Lucia leaving Mackay in August 2017 then on to the Med for 18 months before going back around to Australia via the Pacific.

We will look out for you when you get to Mackay, Australia, if you are on that leg of the trip, to meet you both and also in case we can be of any assistance on land here at that stage.

Bon Voyage!!

Hi  I did not think that the relays in the box in which is the regulator are in relation with fans.

I will be in ORION next week end end and I will look how the fans are connected.

I suppose that you check the fans connecting them directly to DC?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan 6.5 MDKDP Water Pump Part Number

Germain Jean-Pierre <jgermain@...>
 

Hey Bill,

I agree with your take regarding the original Speedseal…. the Life is a nice improvement as the blades sides do not run on a dry surface if water is slow to prime.  The tips are more tolerant of the lack of lubrication.

I will post back later today after I chat with Speedseal. (Spares: I also procured all starting circuitry spares for my Onan; I think I cannot do without genset but could get along fine without main engine especially as Eleuthera will be a lesser electrical Gonzo once the refit is complete)

See you this summer!  :-)

JP,

I did not mention the Speedseal Life, because I know nothing about it. However, your description makes a lot of sense and hopefully SpeedSeal has impeller improvement figured out..

Frankly, I have felt like I was a little "conned" by SpeedSeal with their first version. Not much to it unless you think that the thumb screws are revolutionary.

I hope that you will keep us posted on your results. I change the Yanmar at 500 hours and the Onan at 250 hours. Changing with these hourly limits, I almost always change before losing a blade.

Hello Bill,


There could be a misunderstanding here. Speedseal produces 2 kits: standard Speedseal and the Speedseal Life.  I agree with your assessment of the original Speedseal but the Life unit is different.  

Speedseal  machined a recess into the cover and add a Teflon disk at each end of the impeller.  The end cap on the water pump is then sealed with a thin rubber gasket.  This is the type I have on the Volvo; I can report in excess of 1000 hours of use without failure using a 500 hour replacement regime.  The impellers show surprising little wear upon removal.  In my opinion, this is a much improved product.

When I talked to Speedseal about 2 months ago, I asked them to duplicate the latter design for the Onan.

That said, I also procured a second water pump… as per your suggestion.. and yes, I have a wet/dry vac on board.  (… a frequently used tool..) Your suggested procedure is too good to ignore.  :-)

However, that said....

I believe that the best way to deal with impeller changes on this pump is to remove the pump. It is very easy to remove (two bolts/nuts). Once removed, it is very easy to change the impeller, and more importantly inspect the output port of the water pump where impeller fins will get lodged. You cannot really see that output port well unless you remove the pump, and having SpeedSeal would not help you see this port.

I have two pumps onboard because although the Onan may be the best generator you can buy, that water pump is the worse part. In addition to frequent impeller changes (avg 250 hours), the mechanical shaft-seal will fail (leaking salt water onto the pan) and the shaft key for the impeller will fail (causing the impeller to spin on the shaft).

BTW, I never disconnect a water line or a water pump without a wet vacuum in my hand. The wet vacuum will keep salt water from getting where you do not want it, and it will also suck up debris and impeller blades...always inspect the pumped water in the wet vacuum before you dump it...you will be surprised. You c an also use the wet vacuum to clean debris and impeller fins out of the Onan heat exchanger by removing the end-cap. Suggestion: have a new end-cap on hand (part number 130-5176 with gasket and O ring...requires 2 - 1 for each end). These end-caps are delicate and may break when removed..

Yanmar has a new easy to remove impeller.

sailormon <kimberlite@...>
 

The new yanmar impellers are threaded on the inside for the first ¼ inch. They sell a bushing that screws in to the impeller and then a bolt threads into the center of the bushing. Just turn the bolt and the impeller is out.

2 minutes with knurled bolts on the cover.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel 54 engine room airflow fan problem

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Hello Ron,

I hate to ask, but is the fan still working? Could you connect it directly to the appropriate voltage?

I had the same problem (on my Super Maramu 2000) both engine and genset fan were not working.

For the first one: http://nikimat.com/engine_room_fans.html I tested the capacitor, then simply changed the fuse and it worked.
For the second, the Jabsco fan was dead, so I replaced it.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks Bill, Jose and Leo, thanks for the advise.
Highly appreciated.



I've replaced all relays (have four of them all linked
to each other) but the fans are still not working. It
clearly seems a signal issue as the fans are working fine
(have now changed the connection on the relay to the
'normally' open connection (87a) and can switch the
fans on manually. The signal to change the
'normally' open (I.e No connection) to closed comes
from somewhere at the engine but can't trace it far
enough to see where it goes. We have an auxiliary alternator
(140A) mounted on the engine which junction box houses the
Mastervolt battery charger as well as two relays of which
one seems to cater for the signal to start the fans.



The problem seems to be somewhere else. Will now have to
find an proper electrician to check the circuits.



If anybody has any other suggestions, feel free to let me
know.



Thanks,

Ron, SY LILY, Sint Maarten

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan 6.5 MDKDP Water Pump Part Number

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

I am a little late to this conversation. I am familiar with the SpeedSeall product as I have one on my Yanmar. I think it is 80%hype and 20% product because all it really is, is knurled thumb knobs that replace bolts...yes, they give you a new end-plate with 2 holes and 2 slots, rather than the stock 4 hole end-plate, and supposedly they have a great extractor tool, but...the vice grip tool that Gary Silver designed and posted a photo of is 100 times better. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/photos/albums/832106688

BeBe (2003 - 387) has a 2002 Onan Model 7MDKAV, SN# JO10296057. A SpeedSeal solution will not work for this Sherwood water pump because of the way the pump is designed.

However, that said....

I believe that the best way to deal with impeller changes on this pump is to remove the pump. It is very easy to remove (two bolts/nuts). Once removed, it is very easy to change the impeller, and more importantly inspect the output port of the water pump where impeller fins will get lodged. You cannot really see that output port well unless you remove the pump, and having SpeedSeal would not help you see this port.

I have two pumps onboard because although the Onan may be the best generator you can buy, that water pump is the worse part. In addition to frequent impeller changes (avg 250 hours), the mechanical shaft-seal will fail (leaking salt water onto the pan) and the shaft key for the impeller will fail (causing the impeller to spin on the shaft).

BTW, I never disconnect a water line or a water pump without a wet vacuum in my hand. The wet vacuum will keep salt water from getting where you do not want it, and it will also suck up debris and impeller blades...always inspect the pumped water in the wet vacuum before you dump it...you will be surprised. You can also use the wet vacuum to clean debris and impeller fins out of the Onan heat exchanger by removing the end-cap. Suggestion: have a new end-cap on hand (part number 130-5176 with gasket and O ring...requires 2 - 1 for each end). These end-caps are delicate and may break when removed..

Best,

Bill

Re: Amel 54 engine room airflow fan problem

Ron Heyselaar <ronheyselaar@...>
 

Thanks Bill, Jose and Leo, thanks for the advise. Highly appreciated.

I've replaced all relays (have four of them all linked to each other) but the fans are still not working. It clearly seems a signal issue as the fans are working fine (have now changed the connection on the relay to the 'normally' open connection (87a) and can switch the fans on manually. The signal to change the 'normally' open (I.e No connection) to closed comes from somewhere at the engine but can't trace it far enough to see where it goes. We have an auxiliary alternator (140A) mounted on the engine which junction box houses the Mastervolt battery charger as well as two relays of which one seems to cater for the signal to start the fans.

The problem seems to be somewhere else. Will now have to find an proper electrician to check the circuits.

If anybody has any other suggestions, feel free to let me know.

Thanks,
Ron, SY LILY, Sint Maarten

All you have to do is purchase some brass thumb screws

Like these and modify the cover plate. No need for a speed seal.

Hello Gang,

 

I’ve used Speed Seal for years on my previous Volvo powered (TDM22) and have nothing but excellent results.  Failure free to 500 hours.. always.  One already fitted in Eleuthera main engine.

 

I may contribute to a solution as I contacted Speed Seal some time ago with the pump details and asked if they could produce a kit for these Onan/Sherwood pumps…

 

I will chase them up tomorrow AM (UK) and advise accordingly.

 

Kind regards,

Hi Bill,

The sea water pump is made by Sherwood and its model number is G702. You find it in Island Water World catalouge under pumps. Its specified to fit Onan models from 6.5 to 10 kw.

I got one of ours rennovated in Trinidad who confirms that it is a Sherwood pump. 

 

Looking forward to hear more about your experience with speed seal on the Onan, very interested!

I want to buy a Speed Seal impeller cover for my Onan 6.5 MDKDP genset from 1995.  This impeller cover is sold by a UK company. It's a replacement cover that uses knurled knobs to remove the cover making it incredibly easy, especially when in a difficult location as on the Onan.  I have one on my Volvo Penta.  FYI, the newest version has a new feature that allows it to run dry without damage to the impeller.  

 

I need to find out the part number and OEM for the water pump so Speed Seal can identify which cover I need.  ONAN in Seattle could only give me the Onan part number which they say is 132-0413.  They even gave me the Onan drawing of the part which is actually made by a vendor.  Unfortunately, the vendor name is not on the drawing and they can't find it at Onan.  

 

My question is does anyone know the OEM and/or part number of the water pump for my Onan genset noted above.  I did find a rebuild kit on eBay for a water pump with Onan part number 132-0111 and Oberdorf part number 50-P-15.  However, it doesn't look like the same part on the Onan drawing.  My boat is in New Zealand and I'm in Seattle making physical check difficult.  BTW the URL for Speedseal is Welcome to Speedseal

Hi Peter

 

A number of us have been in touch with Riza since seeing the nice job he did for Bill on BeBe. I have ordered one and it should be delivered in the next 2 weeks all the way to Brisbane Australia at a competitive price even after freight from Turkey to Australia. Also I am aware that Alan (M/V Elyses) has done the same and that was delivered to him in New Zealand just 2 weeks back and he is delighted with the quality too. Both he and I will have 3 x 200w solar panels mounted so can't wait to get that free current coming through to our batteries.

 

Riza has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and is highly recommended to all on this site. I have copied his contact details here below for you to get in touch with him. Please note I am not associated with him in any way, just recommended him based on the experience of others and his dealings with myself. The davit arch comes ready to fit to the stern of your Amel with all bolts and everything so you could do it yourself with perhaps just a little help from a local machine shop.  Good luck with it.
