James,

You do not need a socket, or a wrench.

You said you were going to remove glow-plugs or injectors. With either removed you can turn the crankshaft by hand using the belt to the alternator. If it does not turn by hand, rust has probably set in between rings and cylinder walls. If this has happened, forcing things with a socket could break rings and/or score cylinder walls. If it will not turn by hand with injectors removed, I suggest stripping the head off. I was lucky once a long time ago using penetrating oil to free rings from cylinder walls, but I was very lucky to do it without damage.

hi James,

I do not know the boat you are interested in, but I do know Michel Charpentier. I have bought an Amel Sharki from him last year. He is a good and trustworthy guy. He knows a lot about Amel in all the details, being specialised to sell used Amel boats.
I am happy with the boat I have bought from him.

Regards,
Volker, Sharki no. 176

James,
Yes, 24mm, as I recall, but suggest you simply crank the engine while holding the "stop" button so it won't start. This will be more effective in circulating lube oil than a slow hand turn. If you wish, you can also cover the air intake to reduce cranking force. Of course, don't crank too long with the sea water inlet open.
Good luck,
Craig, Sangaris, SN68 with M50.

Re: 24V/230V Inverter

svperegrinus@yahoo.com
 

We wanted an "as factory" installation so we went with the Xantrex PROsine 1800 on #350, on the advice of Bill who has the same model as a factory installation on #387.

Our installation consists of the 806-1884 model (hardwire with transfer relay) plus the remote interface panel 808-1800.  The inverter is installed horizontally in the engine room.  You then remove its LCD panel/switch and install it inside the main cabin (it connects back to the inverter via a flat telephone wire); and put the remote interface panel on the inverter itself.  This way you have two device switches: one on the inverter (with no display) and one inside the cabin (with display).  The inverter is quiet but it does produce a modest buzz, unaudible outside the engine room.   Our installation is 2.5 years old.

We considered the Mastervolt combi charger/inverter, but the one suitable for us would have been the 2500W version.  Our electrician did not recommend this alternative because of the thickness of the existing battery wires in the engine room.  While it is true that when charging at 100A the wires transmit 2500W, when inverting, the wires could transmit up to 5000W because inverters in this range will put out up to double their rate for up to 30 seconds.

Out of all the upgrades we've done on Peregrinus, this is definitively one we couldn't live without –there are so many 230V appliances on board, that the inverter gets turned on several times a day.

We fitted a Cotek 3 KW. Bullet proof gear and in combo with solar, avoids genset useage. Other option is Victron... I would avoid Mastervolt.

Hi Duane,
I believe we have what was the standard fitment in 2004 under the nav tablke rhs cupboard.
Mastervolt 24/500....ie 500W...doesn't run much except laptop, phone chargers etc
I installed a 1500W inverter I bought on the internet and installed it in the locker above the galley and use it to power small kitchen appliances and my espresso machine (that was the real reason for it!).
It is actually electrically much less noisy than the Mastervolt unit.
I know others have even larger units in the engine room
Cheers

Joe,
   Many thanks for the suggestion, I will get that ordered right away.  The manual may not arrive in time for visiting the boat so if anyone else might know the socket size for the bolt on the front of the crank on the Perkins Prima 60 please let me know.  Thanks, James

Perkins Prima 60 Dimensions

James Alton
 

Hello all,  

   Does anyone know the size of a socket required to fit the large bolt/nut on the front of the crankshaft of the Perkins Prima 60?  Also, are the glow plugs metric or Imperial?  I would like to remove the glow plugs, get some oil into the cylinders and roll the engine over by hand before trying to start due to the extended layup.  (If the glow plugs are too tight,  I will remove the injectors)  I cannot seem to find these dimensions searching online.


Thanks,


James


Hoping to soon be the owner of Maramu #220 "Sueno"

Hi Alan,

New Zealand - we found it very hard to leave. Noa is currently in Lisbon, so a bit far for a little cuddle up of #436 and #437 at the moment. I´ll post some photos later.

Cheers,

Walter (Noa, SM436)

Hi Walter,
Where are you?
We are in New Zealand waiting for weather to take us to Fiji.
Do you have any photos of this bowthruster drain pipe arrangement that you have and I don't?
Cheers

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bow thruster

Hi Allan,
#436 and #437 must have met when being built in 2004. Although the first owner of Noa let Amel built a few bits and pieces to his liking,
I´m pretty sure the setup of draining the bow thruster compartment
was not his idea. It would be nice to meet and compare the boats.
Cheers,
Walter (Noa, SM436)
