Sidepower SP 155 TCi needed

Alexander Ramseyer
 

I'm looking for a refurbished SP 155 TCi bow thruster motor.
IMTRA in the U.S. said they only have the new SE170 available.
Does anyone on this forum have experience with the SE 170? Is it a seamless replacement or are there changes to consider?

In any case I would prefer to stick with a refurbished unit of a SP155TCi. If anyone has an idea where I could find that, please let me know (I already asked in Martinique..)
Best,

Re: Prop to Zinc Connection

Stephan Regulinski
 

Bonjour Olivier,

I carefully cleaned the prop shaft to get good measurements. I read zero Ohms between prop shaft and the prop.

But from prop shaft to zincs on the rudder I got a range of measurements between 2 and 50 Ohms, depending on movement of the propeller. I measured 0.2 Ohms from bonding wire on the C Drive to zincs on the rudder. Any idea why this could occur? Should I do something to correct?

Merci beaucoup,

Stephan Regulinski

Hi,

Here is the photo. Once you have it apart have a machine shop open up the hole a few thousands of an inch.

today I tried to align the engine and the c-drive. unfortunately I was not able to remove the vetus coupling from the shaft, tried it also with a puller but without success.  Are there any tricks, special tools,... how this can be done? I remember Eric uploaded a foto showing the tool he made for that, but could not find it. any help welcome

Re: What is this black gasket

Patrick McAneny
 

Bill , Might the gasket fit over the threaded opening and rest on top of the reservoir and the cap tighten down on top of it ,I see black marks on the bottom of the cap as though it had been in contact with the rubber gasket. Not the typical gasket/cap contact point , but may be. Does the gasket fit over the threaded part of the reservoir ? The diameter looks about right .

See the black gasket in the attached picture. It was found inside the C-drive oil reservoir. At first glance I thought it was the gasket for the top, but obviously not. It is too large. 

I think I have seen this gasket before.

Any help would be appreciated.

Craig,

I am amazed that you found a US source for these boxes! Thanks for sharing, I have added this information to my Sueno file.
I will be in Florida myself pretty soon and will follow up. I agree with what you said about the cooling fins not being needed since our usage is of short duration.

Thanks,

They were $220 each plus tax & shipping (a few years ago).
You will have to grind off some of the cooling fins on the mainsail furler to fit it inside the mast (at least on my SN). This is what AMEL did, I'm sure and it has no effect on the operation (the fins would only be needed for high speed continuous operation in an industrial application). You will need to reuse the delrin mounts and, as I recall, you need to bore a couple of holes in the cover to match the delrin block. You can add Zerk grease fittings if you wish.
Good luck with it,
Craig

Hi Bill. I would suggest it goes under the cap. Sometimes the material used expands with age.

Re: vetus coupling removal

Herbert Lackner
 

finally removed it. what you need is a puller, a hammer and 6 hours :-)  . alignment was easy then using the tool.

santorin owners with a shaft alternator: the "special tool" should be 45 mm longer than for the SM, due to the pulley of the shaft alternator. it still works but would be better if I had made it longer.
