Feruno GPS GP 90

Data ports on GPS
I have discovered that the main Feruno GPS that supplies position data to the VHF and the nav system as well as SSB is only working from one port not three.
Initially the navnet stopped getting position but the VHF did, so I swapped the ports and now the navnet gets position data but not the VHF.
This has happed all of a sudden. I conclude that the GPS had a problem.
Has anyone been down this route?
Any advice?
I am thinking it should either be sent for service or replaced…but maybe there is another solution?

Hi Andre,

a dealer in GB has a new starter on stock: https://www.parts4engines.com/perkins-4-236-starter-motor/

It's a long way to US but I think, it's faster then again 3 months.

Best wishes

I am sorry to report that Mark Fruehauf , from Balcen Watermakers in Maine  has passed away.

He was one of three companies that repaired and had parts for the Dessalator watermaker.  

I always found him very knowledgeable and helpful. I do not know what the family will be doing with the business.

Why don’t you try a starter motor alternator rebuilding company ? I just had a motor rebuilt here on Long Island last week.

To all fellow Amelians

I have a 1988 Mango with a 4-236 Perkins engine with 13000 hours. Engine runs great, no smoke and good oil analysis. Unfortunately the engine starter has failed. I’m in a busy marina in Connecticut and over last 3 months they have found 4 replacement starters but none have worked… either they did not fit, had wrong voltage (my boat is 12 volts) or defective actuator. I am now wondering if I will ever be able to secure new starter and I am now considering a new engine…

I am asking for any advice on what options I have for a new engine… Any opinions would be greatly appreciated..

Hey Folks,

Looking for some guidance from the group from anyone whom has installed a higher output externally regulated alternator on their Volvo TMD22.  What brand did you choose?  What drove your decision process?  Any service or fitment issues worth mentioning?

I thought they were made by Goiot hatch company. They hold open the hatch in the galley and the aft head and cabin.

Re: Elastic coupling for Yanmar engine

 

JB,

Your Yanmar was not original to your boat. This damper plate was probably selected at the time your boat was repowered.

I believe what you show in the photo is a Centa Marine Damper Plate. Try searching here: http://www.centa.info/?show=products&c=&what=marine

The photo below is a Centa Marine Damper Plate CF-DS-22-336 R140018

I have been stuck in Empuriabrava since early May because of the lousy job done by the Port Napoleon boatyard which nearly sank our Meltem. My insurance company has been great and is now suing them for recovery.
Bottom line, plenty of time to go through problems.
The boatyard here (Empuriabrava in near Cadaques, Catalunia, in the Med) has been trying to source an elastic coupling and the dealer, after one month, told them it may take at least 15 weeks to get one. They can only source that part in Calalunia, but they asked my help to find one on my own if I can.
Any help is appreciated. I hope the photos are good enough.

Re: New engine for 1988 Mango

Andre, unless your starter has been severely overheated (or on fire), or has had a structural failure, almost any starter can be rebuilt to better than new status. I would investigate all the commercial marine starter rebuilders and beat some bushes.  Rewinding and applying resin to armatures has been very common for decades.  Cast iron can be welded by talented craftsman and this is done in the antique automobile and vintage race car industry frequently where replacements are not available.

 

I know of stationary 4-236 engines to go 25,000 hours when used in agricultural irrigation applications. Once they are turned on they are rarely turned off. They have dual/separated crankcases and filter media so that new oil can be introduced without shutting them down. When they reach 25,000 hours, the guys who maintained them would purchase them, put new rings, bearings and seals in them and use them for their own projects or sell them to anxious waiting buyers. I saw one in process of an overhaul and the pistons were removed from the top of the block, not dropped out of the bottom. NO ridge at the top of the stroke as is usually present with this amount of hours.  Incredible. This was due to no heat cycles/temperature fluctuations, clean lubricants and excellent/consistent metallurgy.

 

The negative to this plan is other ancillary equipment such as heat exchangers, pumps and other essentials will become rare, then unobtainable. Even now new injectors are harder to find than a few

years ago. And since this is a dirty rotten stinky analog dinosaur, it could be legislated out of existence.

 

Seriously, when importing a used boat into the United States and some European countries, you must certify, under severe perjury penalties , that the engine in the boat is original and meets the tier emission standards in effect at the time , OR, if a replacement engine, it too meets the same standards. If the engine is a replacement, be sure to get manufacturers supplied proof of compliance with the appropriate regulations. I learned about this from hard experience with customs officials who don’t really care about anything than their retirement package.

 

If you do replace, Beta was a good choice but haven’t had any exposure to them for several years. My go to is Yanmar and I am proud that I pushed Amel hard to switch to them when Volvo started to get hinky with warranty reimbursements. Big leap of faith for Amel as Yanmar was not as well known in Europe and was still developing a sufficient dealer network. It all worked out well.

All the best,

Joel
