Re: Intermittent starting issue

Patrick McAneny
 

Eric , I agree there are many connections ,contact points and faults in wiring ,any one of which could be responsible for a starting problem. I also occasionally have an issue , where the engine does not shut down when I turn the key. I wish I better understood the electrical system , its a bit complex for me to trouble shoot sometimes. If it were possible to find a competent mechanic nearby ,I would gladly hire him for a day to assess my systems.

Pat,

Intermittent failures can be such… fun.

If I understand correctly, when you have this issue with starting, the blowers do not run as well.  That narrows down the likely causes quite a bit.  

The key switch, or the wiring around it would be my prime suspect, although it could be other things too.  12V power comes from the engine, up to the key switch.  When the switch is “ON” the power is sent back to the engine, and to the relays that turn on the blowers.  If the blowers and the starter are showing common failure, then the fault must be before the wires divide on the positive side, or maybe after they come together on the negative side back to the battery.

Another place to look is the isolating relay in the ground wire.  If that is intermittent in operation, or has bad contacts, to could interrupt the circuit on the return side.  I think this is unlikely, because the blower negative return is connected on the battery side of this. Other than those two, its a matter of pulling and cleaning connections to be sure contact is good.

Key switches on both Volvo and Yanmar panels are not 100% waterproof, maybe a bit less so with the key left in.  A drop or two of salt water inside, and things can get unreliable. I have never disassembled one to clean it, although I have replaced them.

Re: Rocna 33 anchor- does it fits without modification on Super Maramu 2000

Patrick McAneny
 

MY Rocna 33 held my boat and a 47 ft. Cat that drug into us at 4 am . in Guadeloupe ,his anchor slid up my chain and stopped at the bow . The Rocna held us both for an hour in 30 Kts. before finally breaking free. I was impressed , but I would probably go for the 40 ,just for a added margin of safety.
Good Luck,

Hello, after having had some inconvenience with the original 30 kg Wasi anchor (I have skidded several times although i put a lot of chain), I chose to use a 55 kg Rocna anchor.  It may seem too big but for 3 years now the anchor has never loosened even with 50 knots winds.  It fits perfectly into the bow roller of the Amel 54 which is the same as that of the latest Supermaramu, i think.
When the wind blows strong at anchor, it is safe to have an oversized anchor that will not fail. You sleep better at night.

Pat,

The information Bill, Mark, and Dan provided you is correct.  I just replace the ball valve in my forward head with the Groco part number IBV-1250BSPP.  Because it is a straight thread you will need to use a thread sealant to both seal the threads and to fix the ball valve in a position where you can access and turn the handle.  I used Loctite 592 Thread Sealant which has worked out well so far.

Re: Rocna 33 anchor- does it fits without modification on Super Maramu 2000

Slavko

It is important to remember when we are talking an anchor fit on a Super Maramu the bow roller came in (at least) two different configurations.  What fits on an older boat might not fit on a newer one, and the other way round.

I would second the comment that a Rocna 33 is too small for long term constant use on a Super Maramu.  Read the fine print on the Rocna sizing table:  They are recommending anchors for “UP TO 50 KNOTS OF WIND”. To my mind, that is not adequate for a boat that needs to be self-sufficient at anchor in what ever weather comes. Not saying that the Rocna is a bad anchor, just that it needs to be bigger than recommended in the official table for full time cruising use. I know Rocna makes a big deal about being very conservative on their anchor sizes, but nobody ever work up at 2AM in a 60 knot squall worried their anchor was too big.

We had a Roca 40 (80lbs) on Harmonie, and it fit on the “old style” bow roller fine.  We have since replaced it with a 105 lb Mantus M1. We have a lot more confidence it it than the smaller Rocna. It took a bit fo jiggering to have it fit on the roller, but we do not consider it too large at all. I’d put a 120 lb on if it would fit.

Re: Volvo D3-110 Sensor - Spare Sensor Sets

Rudolf Waldispuehl
 

Dear Amelians with VP D3-110 C engines,

 

As disused few weeks ago, I made some research about the D3-110 sensors and asked SAV. AMEL re-directed me to GWEN Marine which is the Volvo supplier in France who delivers the Engines and Spare parts to AMEL.

 

GWEN Marine gave me a list (quote) and advice of the correct electronical parts/sensors. Attached you will find the quote of those VP parts for the D3-110 C Series. Unfortunately, in French because they don’t speak English. In the list are the most important parts who can potentially fail, but not necessary do fail !

 

There are only two components which are specific to our boats:

 

  • One is the Oil Pressure Sensor which is Bipolar – Nr. 863160 (old),
    • The new Part Nr is: 8151889

 

  • Another is the Mass-Relay – Nr. 860877-0 (old), the new Nr is: 872242
    • The Mass Relay is located close to the Alternator below the Oil-filter housing.

 

The others are standard Volvo Engine parts, and do not need extra wire (due to isolated grounding).

 

According to Gwenael RAMBAUT from GWEN MARINE, all Sensors can be changed by the owner without special tool, but technical competence and basic understanding needed.  BTW:  There are sensors which need a EVC computer fault reset or calibration for proper work after replacement.

GWEN said; “None of the offered sensor replacement needs a reset or calibration of the EVC computer”. BUT: I’m not 100% sure if this is correct?

P.S.

You don’t need not order all parts from a Volvo Penta dealer because you probably find some elsewhere for a fraction of the Volvo Pricing as many of you discovered. Some are original BOSCH sensors and can be found in Internet as Scott & Ulrich mentioned recently. Be careful, there are lots of similar part numbers around. But at least you do have the correct original VP Parts numbers now! If you want to be sure, go to a Volvo Dealers which will be happy to get the high margin 😉

Betreff: Re: [AmelYachtOwners] Volvo D3-110 Sensor - Spare Sensor Sets

 

Ruedi,

 

The best advice I can give you to get a list is to contact Volvo France for that list with your model and serial number. You have model C and I believe the latest model is at least H. 

 

Volvo France is the ones who modified at least some, maybe all of the D3s for isolated ground. There might be a different sensor between some models. I am not sure of that. 

 

The sensor that seems to be the most common sensor to fail and cause problems is the boost sensor followed by the oil pressure sensor, but this is not an analytical answer.

 

If/when you get an answer, please let me know, and if possible, ask which models of the D3, in addition to the C, the list will apply to.

Dear Amelia’s  

 

Because our Volvo D3-110 is running with some sensors, I try to find out which of those are most important and vital to have as spare. I do have the D3-110 C and I’m quite happy with it, but I feel better to have those sensors who could fail as spare.

 

Does anyone have a list and a source of those vital sensors?

Can anybody let us know which of those you have spare and where you ordered them?

 

@Bill Rose: Do I need to have all these sensors with isolated ground? Not sure about these?

I found some with 3 Pins, four pins and also 2 pins. The “m prop valve” Sensor has only 2 pins and therefore most likely not with isolated ground?? Correct?

Re: Engine overheating - Amel54

Sv Garulfo
 

Bill,

I don’t think one should hear gurgling after the first few seconds of engine runtime. To me, continuous gurgling is a sign of an air leak somewhere in the raw water circuit. 

When it was happening to us, we eventually found the source of the air leak as being at the anchor wash check valve, letting air enter the circuit from the outlet at the bow. One easy way to check that is to tape over that outlet and hear the gurgling disappear. 

I don’t know if such an air leak could be enough to explain a overheating engine though.

Hi All,

I've a problem with my engine D3-110i-C engine running hot (it has 1350hrs on the clock)  I'm having to keep the rev's down at 1100RPM of less otherwise the engine temp steadily rises, so that once it gets to 95degC I back of  the revs.

Apart from the temperature gauge, if I let it run hot some steam can be seen in the exhaust.

Another thing I've noticed is some gurlgling noise coming from the cockpit drain - I'm suspicious this is coming from the anti-syphon bleed hose from the exhaust anti-syphon loop.

I've check the sea water intake, the sea-chest strainer, changed the impeller (it was okay), I've bled air out of the top of the sea chest, I've taken the hoses off the exhaust elbow and that appears clear.

Any suggestions?

Re: Leak on oil filter TMD22a

Bill, thanks. Unfortunately that is not what has been mounted on Kolibri. I assume that someone removed the original filter mount and made a custom piece that bolts onto the original 3 holes of the filter mount of the engine block. I was hoping it was an Amel modification and that it therefor was properly engineered and documented somewhere. Guess bad luck on my side.

Re: Leak on oil filter TMD22a

 

Herman,

I am not sure I can help, but I will try.

That remote oil filter adapter may have leaked before and someone repaired it by using epoxy or something else to stop the leak which also has given you the problem you currently have. I also suspect someone fabricated what you have. And, I believe there is more than 1 bolt. Is that all you found? 
Here is a link to the exploded original filter mount (thumbnail is below...better view with the link: 
image.png

I searched for a photo of the Volvo TMD remote oil filter kit and did not find one. I found the Volvo OEM remote filter bracket Part 3860450, but I did not find the engine-mounted item. I think it is possible that the part attached to your engine was fabricated by someone. I suspect that the original oil filter mount/bracket has 2 bolts. The photo below may be the OEM Volvo kit for the remote oil filter. If not, it is likely similar. This system leaves the original oil filter mount in place and you screw an adapter to the original filter mount, then attach hoses to it leading to the new location for the filter.
image.png
The few remote oil filter kits I have seen added by owners work like this kit above and are better illustrated with the kit below. The red-circled piece screws onto the existing filter mount as a filter does, then the hoses are connected to it and the remote filter mount mounted.

Hi Pat,

 

There are two types of BSP threads;

- BSPP - Female & male thread are both parallel (also known as G)

- BSPT - Female thread is parallel and the male thread is tapered

 

Since the ball valve is female on both ends it might be labeled as BSPP or just BSP.

 

Hope this helps.

Your concerns about messing holding regarding Original Amel Wasi Bugelanchor…i totally agree with you. We already have had so much trouble with them im weedy soil and hard sand. no pleasure anymore, we changed. No more trouble!

Ask UltraMarine Anchors in Prague ( resp. For Europe) and there for Kris Teaotea, sales manager.
He did made a special quote for us Ameliens, about 28% less 
I have also ordered a 45 kg for pur A54. Ist fits perfectly on our bowroller,inkl. the special swivel. Shipping easy in whole Europe, also to our little remote island in Greece. here within 10 days.

B&G HYDRA 2000 - Depth and Sonic Speed stopped working

Andrew & Kate Lamb
 
Edited

The B&G depth and sonic speed have suddenly stopped working. Testing according to manual in Sonic speed unit seems to have correct values, so I am suspecting that the problem is the Depth Card in the HYDRA 2000 unit. I have tried resetting DEPTH card though FFD this did nothing. Versions in FFD shows no checksum for DEPTH unit. I removed the Circuit board battery and re-inserted and on next power up the sonic speed and depth were working but depth was intermittently flashing ‘CAL’ on next power cycle  it returned to broken state. About to try replacing circuit board batteries but am not hopeful that this will make a difference. Anybody had similar experience / fix / best approach etc.
