Bill,
     If you haven't already got an Amel Manual on board, it would really be a great help if you acquired a CD in English of same, which will describe all the operating procedures and ongoing maintenance requirements.

Hello William, Bill and Trevor,

concerning the genoa furler, the captain is right. Under the pulley that bears the pin, an aluminum disc receives the pin. It is attached to the aluminum drive shaft thanks to 3 machine screws, ALLEN heads. These screws can either shear or come off. When sheared, they have to be replaced and put into new tapped holes made in the aluminum shaft. This means the pulley has to be removed from the stainless steel hub (which is sometimes tricky and may require an hydraulic pusher/puller) to give access to the shaft and disc.

Bill and Trevor, you don't see what the captain is meaning because you may have a later release of the genoa furler. Indeed, later on, AMEL redesigned the part (that receives the pin) and made it only one part with the drive aluminum shaft (no more screws).

William, in Bermuda, you will need to find a good mechanic workshop. They will manage to replace the faulty screws. This is not very complicate hardware.

Have a good day.

Hi Bill,
Tell your delivery captain that the Furler can be operated manually from the cockpit if he has a long enough line. It is crossed around the Furler and run through two blocks attached to the bottom of the second stanchions from the bow, then run to the small cockpit winches.  It takes a long line, but if he has it he can furl from the cockpit.

I would bet that the small piece of track is somewhere on the boat, along with one for the mainsail track.  Antal may be able to supply that piece of track when you order the new car.  If you have to order from Amel, send an email describing what you need, and call Maud personally.  If you don't call, your email may not be addressed for a week or two.

Re: message from delivery captain input

seafeverofcuan@...
 

Bill,
       When brand new your boat came with a long green and white line about 18mm in diameter. It's purpose was for manual back up if the electric genoa furling failed.
You put it around the grey colored pulley or "plate" at the bottom of the foil as described, then cross the line over and bring it back along each deck feeding it through a block attached to a stanchion on both port and starboard. That will give you the angle you require to direct the lead to your secondary cockpit winches from where you will have full manual control of furling or unrolling the genoa.
To disconnect the electrical drive you pull the stainless steel pin that is mounted on the grey pulley/"plate" and you the have manual control of he foil. It would be possible I think, for something to have sheared in the drive below within the gearbox but like Bill I can't really understand what he means when he refers to bolts shearing.?
The foil will operate manually because the pulley or plate as your skipper describes it is if I remember correctly clamped to the bottom of the foil.
Every boat when new came with two little pieces of track for the mizzen, they were taped together with masking tape and look so totally insignificant many people thought that they were something left over from production and threw them way.
Let us know how you progress.
Good luck.

Interestingly I didn’t see that file but in fact in the end, having exhausted many other attempts to get the race out, this is what I had to do to get the bearing race out – see my previous post – I drilled a small carefully positioned hole above where the inner bearing sits but below where the cap comes down to through to underneath the race – also opposite the grease entry point so that grease shouldn’t bypass the main channel through the central bearing.  Through this I was able to use a center punch to push the race out – it was not easy though this race split because it came out unevenly and I didn’t want to drill more than one hole – I then  required a metal chisel to get the rest out (the chisel was a written off by the end)  – because it was an exact fit to the channel rather than the correct race with is 1 mm smaller, the whole process was really difficult.

 

My dilemma now is whether to block this hole with resin just in case grease short cuts through it. Not sure at the moment. I am going to discuss in any case with Bruntons as this autoprop was clearly not correctly assembled in the first place.

All,

 

The file named AutoProp Maintenance & Overhaul/AutoProp Inner Race Removal Questionable procedure.PDF was deleted by me from the added files. I mistakenly added it to the files section in the folder "AutoProp." That folder, BTW, has some very good information. I was also wrong when I said that Eric sent me that file. Now, I am not sure who sent it, but it was not Erik (Kimberlite).

 

This deleted file suggested the drilling of the hub of the AutoProp to help remove the inner race. Since that hub and the area inside the hub is filled with grease, I am sure this is not a good solution. I did not want to be responsible for someone following that procedure.

 

If anyone should want that file, let me know at svbebe"at"gmail.com and I will email it to you.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: H6 AutoProp Overhaul Instructions/Parts Info Posted in Files Section

Andrew & Kate Lamb
 

Hi

 

I finally got all the blades disassembled – two of these were relatively straight forward and with the instructions from various sources (thanks Eric and Alexandre) the hardest bit – getting the thrust bearing race on the blades  off – was eventually straight forward and the blade races on two of the blades just dropped out. The third blade was a different story - interestingly the one that I on reflection have never been able to push grease in through the side grease point. It was a complete nightmare and needed some extreme measures to get the bearing race out (eventually in pieces) – it turns out that it was the race that should be in the hub not the blade and therefore being and exact fit to the channel in the blade was blocking the grease from getting in (hence my confusion on initial inspection) and had seized in place. Getting this out was not without some damage to the blade but I think it will survive – This prop is 10 years old and I don’t believe has ever been serviced so the bearing races must have been put in upside down at manufacture.

 

Anyway I think the statement in the assembly instructions;

 

“4.         Now fit the thrust bearing (#9), into the blade and hub. Note that the races are of different inside diameters.  IMPORTANT...Fit the largest inside diameter race into the blade. If not fitted correctly you will restrict the grease flow into the propeller. Place the captured balls & race into the hub.”  - is VERY important.

Good evening Andrew,



Looks like Eric answered your questions.



I just had my H6 Aito prop rebuild, there was 1 bearing a
little stiff. I gain 200 rpm (full throttle).


The person that rebuild mine, said every 2000 engine hours,
other say every 10 years…




I posted some files and pictures on:

http://nikimat.com/auto_prop_h6.html



The file will help you, the pictures will help for the
removal, etc. but not the rebuild as I hired someone.


(My philosophy in not rebuilding myself was: it is done so
rarely, I rather have someone familiar with it doing it - if
it had been something done every other year, I would have
learnt).




Hope that help a little.

Hi 

Whilst our

boat was on the dry and after the normal greasing of the

auto-prop H6, I noticed that one of the blades
doesn't

turn as easily as the other two also when I push the
grease

through the central cap it doesn't come out the side

blade grease hole like the other two. I have stripped it

down and the ball races, seals and central removable

bearings all seem ok the only difference that I can find
is

what seems to be another bearing I don't think one
that

can be changed which seems more tightly fixed into the
blade

in the "bad" blade than the other two. Also I
am

able to turn by hand the inner side of the bearing on the

two "good" blades. It does not look like this

bearing can be removed easily in any of the blades but on

the "good" blades if I syringe white spirit

through the side blade grease hole it trickles through

behind this bearing where as I can't get any white

spirit through in the "bad" blade side grease

hole. When I put it all back together the "bad"

blade feels marginally stiffer than the other two. The
lips

seals seems fine on all of the blades. 

I wondered if anyone had knowledge

or experience enough to know whether I should be too

concerned about one of the blades being slightly stiffer

than the other two and thoughts / advice on what to do

next?

thanks

Now, I am not sure who sent it, but it was not Erik (Kimberlite).

This deleted file suggested the drilling of the hub of the AutoProp to help remove the inner race. Since that hub and the area inside the hub is filled with grease, I am sure this is not a good solution. I did not want to be responsible for someone following that procedure.

If anyone should want that file, let me know at svbebe"at"gmail.com and I will email it to you.

After viewing that file I deleted it because I believe it is a very questionable procedure and would not want to be the cause of someone using it.
