Leece-Neville 175 amp alternator and smart regulator modification

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

I have been in communication with two Super Maramu owners, Alan Leslie (Elyse SM437) and Dr. Andrew Lamb (Ronpische SM472). We have been discussing their solutions to adding a smart voltage regulator to the Leece-Neville 175 amp alternator.

You can find documentation on each of these in the Files section. Look for Leese-Neville Alternator Mod...

Alan's approach using a Next Step alternator is sound and working exactly as he planned. 

I like the approach by Dr. Andrew Lamb s/y Ronpische SM472 with the Sterling Power Products Digital Regulator and the simplicity and functionality of design. The Sterling regulator gives you the option to run either the internal regulator or the external regulator and does not modify the alternator at all except for one internal and easy wire splice. There is an optional and extremely desirable multifunction remote that displays information including charge status, battery/alternator temp, and voltages. 

You can download these files at the URL:https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/files
Look for Leese-Neville Alternator Mod...

I did not compare prices, but assume that Andrew's installation is much more costly than Alan's.

Hope this simplifies your life and gives you a new project.

No Tony, unfortunately i'm too illiterate to write. Instead i shoot videoblogs. I started to upload them (slowly slowly) on facebook.yahya.karagoz.77 and some of them on amel owners page on facebook. Most of the blogs are in Turkish language, but places, passages etc needs no narration at all. Besides, i talk nonsense anyways. Cheers, Haldun

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: File Upload issues and some new useful features and recommendations

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

UPLOAD ISSUE - FILES
It appears as though Yahoo was rejecting long file names when I attempted to upload a PDF to the Files section. When I shortened the name it worked. Thank you Jose for the help.

NEW FEATURES - SEARCH PHOTOS
Some of you recall that we had an issue with Yahoo's limit of 100mb limit for the total space for all Files. We no longer have that problem...we now have 2 gigs of total space for Files.

Also, when you are on the website, you can now search photos be key word. Click on photos,  then enter a key word in the search box. It will return a list of thumnails of any photo with that key word in the name. When searching for "alternator," it will not return a photo of an alternator where the photo doesn't have alternator in the name.

RECOMMENDATIONS
So please take care when uploading photos. Try to find an existing photo album that you can add your photo to, and be sure to name the photo appropriately.  An example would be if you had a photo of a heat exchanger on a Yanmar engine...search for Yanmar to find an existing album and name your photo including the words heat exchanger. If someone searches for "heat exchanger," they will find it and if someone searches for Yanmar, they will find the album including your heat exchanger along with all the other Yanmar related photos.

I will go a step further and urge you NOT to create albums with your boat name. When searching for something your boat name is only relevant to you. I am only a member of this group, and may be out of line making these suggestions.  If so, Jose, I apologize.

I value this group, its members and the information here that makes Amel ownership much more enjoyable.

Hi All,

s/v Amanin, Amel 54 no.164, has just completed her first singlehanded circumnavigation, and arrived at her home mooring in Datca, Turkey.

Main ports of the journey were, Knidos (Turkey, Nov 2012), Gozo, Smir, La Palma, Martinique, Panama, Nuku Hiva, Tuamotu Atolls, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora, Cook Islands, Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia, Thursday Island, Darwin, Christmas Island, Reunion, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Mindelo, La Palma, Smir, Gozo, Datca (Turkey, May 2014).

I am thankful to the stubborn but good people of Amel Boatyard, for building this fantastic boat for me, who  handled many situations gracefully, and transformed potential misery to pleasure.

I am also grateful to Rıza, of Emekmarine, Gocek, for his 7/24 online technical support, through some bizzare timezone differences.

Onan maintenance

Above is a link to Onan water-flow sensor maintenance.


I was doing my weekly visual check of the engine room and found an almost broken electrical connection the the water-flow sensor on the Onan generator. I had a spare and also had the "T" stainless pipe that the sensor is screwed into. I replaced both. The last time I had issues with this, I was able to clean the sensor. 


My experiece tells mwe that you should clean this sensor every 800 hours, or less and after cleaning,  use an ohm meter to ensure it works. The above link is to the documentation of my most recent issue with this sensor. If you page to the right or left (not sure which, but think it is right) you will see my previous posting about 800 Onan hours ago.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Eno stove - OLD Maramu

Richard Piller <richard03801@...>
 

We used the aft locker on the stern for propane it's vented. We installed an Ele solenoid as well used copper lines to the galley as well as a manual shut off. In addition we installed a Broadwater 3 burner stove you can use most any brand. 
The thought of burning diesel in the cabin does not pass the eyeball nose test.

Hi All,

 I'm seeking experienced opinions relating to upgrading/modernizing the old Eno stove with campgaz/butane and manual shutoff. The gas locker will not fit a US propane tank and even if I enlarge it I will only have one and not a spare to switch to when it runs out. This is a 1989 Maramu 46 (Not Super) so I don't have extra lockers to convert or deck space for an additional locker (the previous owner left me with a pile of rusty campgaz cans in an unvented locker).   

 So... I could replace the stove with a new Eno, add a propane gas control system, modify the tank locker and then run out of gas occasionally and have to top off the tank all the time to avoid running out.

 Or... I could use the ample tank of diesel already on the boat to supply a diesel stove. The only drawback that I see is having to install 2 vent hoses thru the deck for venting similar to the holding tank thru hole.

 I found some reviews of the Wallas Safeflame 87D diesel oven/stove in various sailing forums and it looks like it will fit the space. Has anyone gone this route or had this or another brand diesel stove on another boat?

Curious...My gypsy isn't marked.  My old chain isn't marked.
I got samples:

The old chain is 30mm inside length, 10mm dia...so over a 12 link length it's 12mm shorter than the HT.
 
Does anyone know what my old chain is?

The first time I serviced my windlass, I had a helluva time getting the gypsy off, found the keyway and key were damaged.  I had them cut a new keyway which still looks good now.  Good reason to always use a chain snubber, eh?
Although it's not marked, my gypsy fits the 3/8" G4 HT chain, but not the BBB chain, so I'm going to replace the old ISO G 30 BBB chain with 3/8" ISO G4HT.  Seems all the BBB chain I can find on line is DIN, and all the HT I can find is ISO.  Thanks again, Bill.

I bet Amel owners are going to be teaching a lot of other sailors about chains now (-:

Kent,

I had Riza at Emek (Amel rep in Turkey) rebuild my anchor wash pump. I had the kit and he provided the shop and the labor. I had previously rebuilt this pump and had the same results as Gary Silver, and others...it still leaked...so I decided to let someone else be at fault for the resulting leaks. Guess what...it did not leak after he rebuilt it. Anyway, when they re-installed it, they arrived with new mounts. I suspect the rubber mounts are something available in Turkey and probably easily mailed to the US.

Try him at cagdas"at"emekmarin.com. If he has them, let the rest of the group know, because they will need them if they rebuild this pump.

Hi, all,
In the process of getting all the rust particles out of the false bottom in the chain locker drain pipe, I had to remove the anchor wash pump.  I found 3 of the 4 vibration mounts had failed.  I've been on line for hours trying to find replacements in stainless without success.  The problem is in the 5/16 (or 8mm?) studs in 1" (25mm) length versus the diameter/height of the rubber isolator.  I can't find anything with 1" studs on both ends that has the rubber diameter of 1" (?25mm) and height of 3/4" (19mm) or anything close enough that would work.  If I go up to 3/8" studs, the diameter of the rubber isolator becomes to wide to fit.  Yes I've tried McMasterCarr, and 8 or 10 other sources.

Has anyone sourced these vibration mounts?  Any reason why I couldn't use the mounts that have female threads on both ends and find some SS 5/16" rod to make my own studs?  Would you use something other than rubber? They come in neoprene, polyurethane, and other more grease/oil resistant than rubber... the failure seems to be the glue between the stud plate and the rubber, the rubber seems to be in pretty good shape.

Bill, thank you so much for posting this treatise on anchor chains.  I now know what my old chain is!  I know what to ask for! I get it!  I don't know where you found this info, Bill, but it mustn't have been easy...I searched the web for hours looking for it and never found it.  I've contacted several chain distributors and asked, but none of them could tell me what kind of chain I had.
If I could, I'd give you a giant hug...but I guess you'll have to settle for my best "You DA man!"
Your post will help countless boat owners figure out what they need.

Hey Kent HT is generally what's been used by Amel for years I think you'll find that's more than adequate and you get the stronger chain to go along with that

Kent,

Go to Imtra website and check out differences between 3/8 HT (G4) 5400 lbs breaking load and BBB (2750 lbs load). Weights are similar.  My choice 3/8” HT. I worry less. Be sure the anchor swivel is similarly rated. Remember “the weakest Link”

Curious...My gypsy isn't marked.  My old chain isn't marked.

I got samples:

 3/8"BBB which are 27mm inside length...it's too short to work on the gypsy I have.

3/8" G4 HT which are 31mm inside length...it seems to fit OK.

 

The old chain is 30mm inside length, 10mm dia...so over a 12 link length it's 12mm shorter than the HT.

 

Does anyone know what my old chain is? (10mm dis, 30mm inside length)  If it's G3, of good quality, and available in the US, that's what I'd like to buy, as it's probably significantly cheaper than the HT.  I guess it may be some cheaper Chinese stuff which might explain the severe rust problem.  I don't know what to call it, so I don't know what to search for.

 

Thanks,

Kent

I uploaded a PDF of that link I gave Kent for anchor chain to the files section. It is titled Anchor Chain, Galvanized dimensions and calibration.pdf

Kent, if the gypsy is not marked, it is possible that it has been changed.
