Re: Antal ball bearings

Eric,

Believe it or not, the ball bearing in the Antal Main Boom Car are 1/4 inch (0.25 inch) in OD.  Quite odd for an Italian made part!  I had to replace the shackle on the car due to a crack so decided to measure one for you.  See the attached pic.

Thanks, James,


You may have seen my exchange with Bill. I think I may be getting somewhere.


We've always had a great experience with our Autoprop  which is spinning freely.  I have been amazed that it was able to work at all on a couple of occasions when we have left the boat in foul waters, once in Brasil and once in Spain.  Both times you couldn't see any metal for mussels, but we still managed to limp along at 3-4 knots to a cleaning place. In Brasil, which has a lot of shark attacks that are kept out of the news, that meant spending too much time under the boat about 10 miles offshore. You would be amazed how quickly you can clean a prop.


I hope to post a happy ending to this story soon.

Ian and Judy,

   Sorry, I don’t have the same engine but hopefully someone else will answer that question for you.  

   In general, if your engine is reaching your normal full throttle loaded rpm in neutral but you are 700 short under load of what is normal, either the load is higher than it used to be or the power output has dropped for some reason.  You indicate that the prop is perfectly clean but perhaps it is not auto pitching properly for some reason?  There has been a lot of discussion on the Auto-prop (which I do not have on my boat) on the forum that you could bring up by searching.  

Best of luck and I hope that you get more help with this problem,

 The diesel engine governors that I am familiar with mechanically limit the engine RPM to a preset level by reducing the throttle setting.  If you are getting full revs. in neutral but not under load, I doubt that the governor is your problem.  I am sure that you will get more specific help here from others with the possible causes of your low revs.

Bill,


 Thanks. That's really useful.  I find that in  neutral it is now idling at 800 revs, which seems high;  more importantly, it revs above 3,000--and that's without the throttle flat out.


Looking rather as though the pump now heads the list of usual suspects. Ouch. Still, just about everything else has been rebuilt , so I guess it was feeling left out.

Ian,

Mechanical diesel injection pumps are actually all governor controlled. The throttle is actually controlling the setting of the speed governor,  (sometimes called a "speed regulator") which in turn controls the volume of fuel delivered by the injection pump to deliver the amount of fuel needed to run the engine at the commanded speed.

On Bosch injections systems (like on the Volvo) the governor/regulator is internal to the injector pump, and like all the internal parts of the injection pump, it tends to be highly reliable. But if an engine can not control its speed under no load, it is a likely candidate for a problem.

On some engines the governor is a separate device. I did once work on an engine that had a separate governor that was badly clogged up with emulsified oil when water got into the crankcase... a very unhappy story...

Re: NMEA 0183 wire color?

Daniel,

Thanks for your reply.  So A = Positive and B = Negative.

It can't hurt anything, if it doesn't work then I'll just reverse them.  I was thinking in terms of feeding the S3g Autopilot Computer the Apparent Wind Angle, did you also hook up the NMEA0183 "out" from the S3g?  I can't think of anything the network would want from the course computer.

Steaming/Deck light Replacement

Mark Erdos
 

On the way to Bonaire, the combo steaming/deck light decided not to play anymore and self destructed. Looking at the forum, it appears there were a couple of models used by Amel.

 

I have the original combo unit with three pop-rivets on each side. Has anyone replaced this????

 

I think this is what I need but can’t find info on the hole drilling for the mounting: http://www.aquaintl.com/masthead__foredeck_combination_3108113000.html

 

Can anyone confirm this is the unit and that the holes on the new unit will align to the holes in the mast for the pop rivets?

 

Many thanks.

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Re: Jib car removal

rettirc@...
 

Before I get the grinder out, I am going to get an impact driver to see if I can take 4-5 bolts out and "bend" the track during removal. I shall keep you posted.

I ordered the parts from Antal in Italy and it was a delight dealing with them. I also ordered new springs to hold up the blocks along with B. Bearings for several sheet blocks.

About 70 euro including shipping quite reasonable.


Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Jib car removal

Thanks for the info Pat. I do know there were 2 lengths of jib cars, but also don’t know when Amel switched to the slightly longer ones. I suspect it was after both of our boats were built. I had no idea on how I would ever get the cars off until I saw Gary Silver’s brilliant idea of cutting the track. Good luck on your project.

Hi Pat  I had the same thought as you, i.e. remove only one side.  Didn’t work, the “grip” of the car is so close tolerance that it can’t be rotated enough to slide off laterally from the remaining side of the “T”.  I incrementally whittled away at the sides of the “T” and found that only about 1/32 to 1/16th inch of the “T” top could be left in place on each side of the vertical web portion of the track.  

Don’t forget to protect the gel coat & metal parts from slips of the grinder.  I used an angle grinder for bulk work & Dremmel tool cut off wheels & grinding bits for closer tolerance work, finishing off with hand files.

Thanks for this Graham and great to talk earlier

Looks like I’ll be dismantling the rack and pinion and trying to lube the troublesome cable 

I’ve also sent an email to Amel on the very slim chance they still have a few buried in stores somewhere or as you suggested the Super Maramu cables and cable ends are the same just longer!

Failing that I might post a separate thread on the forum to see if anyone has had experience of sourcing new cables. 

Thanks again for your help

I plan to connect the NMEA TX wires from my B&G Zeus 3 MFD to the Raymarine S3g Course Computer.  It's a bit confusing though, since B&G outputs to TX_A and TX_B and Raymarine has NMEA0183 connections noted "+" and "-".


I have one NMEA 0183 reference and they do not use + and - for wire designation since apparently there is no battery negative wire in the system.


Does anyone know if the TX_A wire connect to the "+" or "-" terminal on the S3g?

Thanks, Bill,


 Alas....in neutral the revs do what they oughta do.


I will have to risk  trying the local Volvo agent.


Incidentally, to anyone who has had Volvo work done near Athens, does Mantalas Kyriakos have a decent reputation ?      Anyone else ?

Ian,

Will the engine run at 2800 rpm unloaded (in netural)?

If NOT, the answer is not fuel starvation (because that would take very little fuel) but a possible problem with the injection pump or speed governor.

If YES, then...  I am not sure...
