SM 2000, Yanmar, negative solenoids isolating the engine

John and Anne on Bali Hai <annejohn@...>
 

I am having trouble with the electrical circuits on this engine which
was one of the first Yanmars to be fitted and as such it was an extra.
The wiring diagrams in the handbook, workshop manual and owners
wiring diagrams give no indication of how Amel wired the engine with
a solenoid on the negative side.
My problem is that sometimes the engine starter will not work but
that seems to have gone away since I have been blundering around the
wiring system but I still have a problem with the stop solenoid. The
engine will not stop until I turn the red fitting on the side of the
injection pump or until I feed the pump solenoid with 12 volts from a
different source. A meter reading on the feed to the solenoid from
the stop button reads about 6 volts until I short out the terminals
on the solenoid supplying negative to the engine at which point the
stop solenoid works.
Ant help would be much appreciated as otherwise I have to queue up
for service from the local agents who will only look at it after they
have digested the full details of the engine including the serial
number.
Having been ripped off by the local air con con artist for 68euros=68
US for a 3euro=3US for a capacitor I am not too happy with the
service people here in Palma, Majorca.

Regards, John, SM 319


Getting rid of those barrel bolts

Howard Berger
 

My wife and I are curious, have any Maramu owners replaced the
practical but unsightly in the extreme barrel bolts that are used to
secure most lockers on the boat? We'd be interested in hearing your
solutions.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Sharki fuel tank

Steve Leeds
 

Geoffrey,
Unfortunately, I think that is the case. If there is a plate, I'm not aware of it. Fuel polishing services use a hose within a hose (one squirting and one sucking) to stir up all the crud in the bottom of the tank and then suck it out for filtration.

Please note that the splendid fellow on s/v Air Ops I was referring
to is none other than Dave WALLACE, not Lawrence. Sorry 'bout that
Dave. That's the second time I've called you "Lawrence".

I definitely need to get out cruising again. Dirt dwelling is

Those are LED's and I believe Amel can give you the information from La
Rochelle .They are short handed because it is August (holiday).Those LED's
should last for 10'000+++ hours so be sure the power supply to the unit is
sound .

All the best,

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SHARKI furling motor

svcharisma
 

David,
I haven't replaced the bushing, but I recently disassembled the whole
system to find a squeak and related friction in my steering that
occured mid-passage and burned up my autopilot computer. There are 3
bushings all together. I am planning to have new ones made when we
arrive in New Zealand and have the shaft machined smooth. We are in
Avatiu Harbor in Rarotonga, Cook Islands and I didn't want to chance
having parts still scattered all over town when we're ready to
leave. The disassembly is a bit tedius, but not difficult. The only
tool I needed to track down was a pair of split ring pliers. There
are two split rings that hold the assemply together, the rest is
screws, nuts and the master links in the chains. The problem we
have is friction rather than wobble. The only play we had in the
system was at the chain sprockets and I was able to take that out by
tightening the set screw. I did half of the work from the cockpit
through the compass hole and the other half from the galley.
