Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] a/c pump replacement

Mark Erdos
 

Jeff,

 

We replaced the expensive Italian Calpeda pump installed by Amel with this: https://www.coastalclimatecontrol.com/index.php/product-catalog/product/260-march-1500-gph-115-230v.html. It works much better than the Calpeda (very old technology and expensive parts - also not suitable to ground to the bonding system). The March pump doesn't need to connect the housing to the bonding system since it is plastic where seawater touches (you will need to connect to the ground). You can probably get the pump cheaper if you shop other than coastal climate: http://www.ebay.com/itm/March-pump-TE-5-5C-MD-1-Phase-115-230V-TEFC-/362037495516?hash=item544b1dc6dc

 

If you wish to purchase the Calpeda pump, Coastal Climate is the USA dealer: https://www.coastalclimatecontrol.com/index.php/water-pumps.html  They are the people who recommended the March pump to me and it has worked well for 3+ years. It was an easy swap as the foot print and hoses are similar. You need to jump the wiring to make it 220v (instructions are included – very easy to do)

 

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] a/c pump replacement

 

 

Does anyone know where to get the salt water circulating pump for the a/c system in the US, or do I have to go thru Amel? 

I hope to replace the original with the new pump, and use the original as a backup.

Also, I am replacing my burket fresh water valves (for the head water flow). I was told the new replacement # was 221602. I know other owners have replaced their valves. Is this the number part you used? 

There was also a rebuild kit. Anyone have the kit #, and the company offering it for sale?

Again, I'll replace the originals (both have issues) with the replacements, and rebuild the originals and keep them as spares.

Thanks in Advance.

Banjo Bolt Torque Spec

Duane Siegfri
 

Does anyone have the torque spec for the banjo bolts (oil lines) on the Yanmar 4JH3-HTE?  There are M10, M15 and M20 bolts in the banjo fitting as noted in the Parts List (this is the thread size not the bolt head size).


I don't see it in either the Op Manual, or the Service Manual.


Thanks,

Duane

It might be easier to monitor temperature of the transmission oil and the exhaust temperature using this:

I had installed the Borel alarm, but there was never any indication it worked and I never knew the actual temperature without going below with my laser temperature gun. But, of course, I never had an overheating situation.

Paul, Just a couple of miles from where you are in Georgetown is Outstanding Marine , a Volvo dealer 1410 275 1200  , ask for Rhonda. I think you said you are hauling your boat tomorrow , I will stop by. Georgetown gets their parts from Outstanding and marks them up a bit.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sharki 127 Solo Circumnavigation

Warren Traill
 

Wow. Good stuff. We own a 1980 Sharki #15. And love it! Have a problem now with the sea water pump dripping water from the openings behind the impeller casing. Does anyone know if this ia an urgent matter to attend to or could I safely motor for a few more hours. It only seems to leak after the engine has been turned off.

Cheers,

Warren

Replacing the cooler every 2,000 engine hours might do it (as suggested), limiting the time the cooler has to corrode.  Checking on the bonding wire occasionally would also be a good idea, I believe that was the problem with my boat.  The failure happened within the first 10 engine hours of my ownership.

I just wanted to note that sensors on the seawater lines were not going to protect the transmission.

I think it is easier to just change the tranny cooler. The one for my yanmar is distributed in the USA for less

Than $200.

Re: Vetus Alarm

Duane Siegfri
 

I'll chime in here with one more thought.  A "low flow" alarm won't help with an over-temperature problem with the transmission.

I had a situation where the tranny heat exchanger rusted out and the flow in the seawater hose sucked out the transmission oil, which overheated the tranny resulting in a ruined transmission.  If I had another heat alarm on the transmission, it might have protected me from the failure.

On the good side, I have a very new transmission and damper plate.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Worn Worm Gears in Furling Gearboxes

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi,
Not that it is critical other than it helps for identification, the smaller gear on a shaft, engaging with a larger gear is known as a pinion. If you google the word you will see they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. That is my understanding.

Re: Worn Worm Gears in Furling Gearboxes

Alan,

Not to get all mechanically nerdy on you, but the "worm" is the helical drive piece on the input shaft, the "worm gear" is round brass part on the output shaft you are referring to as a "spur gear." Again, being very technical, a "spur gear" has a very different tooth geometry than a "worm gear." and is not used with a worm drive.

Gears are round things with teeth around the edge, the "worm" in a "worm drive" is--technically--not a gear.

Especially in the Leroy-Somers boxes, I completely agree the worm does not wear at any significant rate.  It's made of steel. The brass gear (by whatever name) is the part that wears.

If I confused anybody by being overly jargon-ish in my writing, the part I was referring to was the round gear made of brass with teeth in the edges connected to the output shaft of the gearbox.  NOT the helical part off to the side that is driven by the motor.
