Furling and Outhaul gearbox info

Barbara Nairne
 

I found the following msg 7416 - but unfortunately the link is broken is anyone else able to open this as it probably contains the information that will really help

"The following is the installation and maintenance manual for the
furling/outhaul gearbox on our SM2000. It contains disassembly and
parts ordering information.

Thanks so much.

Re: [Amel] Draining of water from chain locker

Barbara Nairne
 

We had problem with a lot of water in left chain locker 1991 SM and after replacing the chain pipe (hawser) it was still filling with water and found that where the electrical cable goes thru to the chain locker the fibreglass had totally disintegrated - had this reglassed and now a DRY chain locker.

Hi, thanks for the info. When you look at the bottom of your chain locker there
is or should be a 20 mm hole that attaches to a hose that runs through the boat
to the bilge. Normally there is an on/off valve be sure it open if you wish it
to drain. Also check the chain pipe leading to the locker to be sure it is not
worn.
Good luck

1. access is terrible - believe (hope) there is a good reason for this.
2. that I have no clue where the water are drained from...
3. actually I found a clue which is a hole on the left side of the boat, but
not


sure is the one - can anyone confirm?

Danny, Good to hear from you, we followed your progress as you sailed home
last year. I drilled out rivets and the extrusion wants to easily come out.I
had sprayed corrosion X in a few days earlier.The set screws apparently do
not involve the extrusion, rather I think they secure the gray furler drum
to the motor shaft.The pins are ready to be pulled, just waiting from the
winds to lay down.

Thanks, Pat

somewhere where you can get a decent anchor. Stainless anchors are
more expensive than galvanised which can be regalvanised as needed
after a few years. The same applies to chain, just make sure that
you get the right gauge of chain for your gypsy. Take the gypsy to

Re: [Amel] triatic

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi Pat, a friend with a SM has just gone through the process of removing the extrusion. He had a rigger do the job. Screws and rivets removed and try as they may they could not separate the extrusion from the motor, including taking the forestay off into the riggers workshop and using all the usual methods to loosen it. In the end they decided there was sufficent surplus length in the extrusion to allow them to cut it off flush and then dig the piece out of the motor top. Good luck.

I am dropping my mast next Monday to rerig and I need to decide to add insulators to the triatic or not.I probably won't ever be using it as an antennae so I can not see the reason for the insulator and neither can the rigger.. Is there another purpose it serves that justifies the expense? Secondly,regarding the headstay ,outside of drilling out the rivets and backing off the set screws, is there anything else that would prevent the forestay aluminum extrusion from come free from the motor.I do not want to start lifting the mast and find that the furler will not seperate.
Thanks,

Re: [Amel] SM2K Yanmar RPM

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi Mark, just to add to the ideas. I have spent many years around diesel engines in a variety of applications. A regular maintenance need is injector servicing and a dark smoky exhaust is one indicator that it is time for that service. Fuel is driven through the injectors into the combustion chamber at very high pressure though a small nozzle. Over time this nozzle wears and increases in diameter leading to over fueling and a smoky exhaust, particularly under load.
I would expect a performance decrease as well as the smoke. Injector servincing is not a big deal. You need a competent tradesman with the right tools to remove them and a specialist service centre to sevice them..

Thanks for the info. I'm current with all the filters, etc. The fact that my RPM's are within the same ballpark as when the previous owner acquired the boat from Amel is consistent with that.

Are my RPM's in line with what I should be expecting? Or is there something about the application that makes the RPM's I'm getting OK. If my RPM's are as expected, I'd think there would be other owners who had been told the same thing as me.

BTW, how can you tell if the autoprop reaches full pitch?

Thanks in advance, Mark

Do you have clean fuel and Air filters / cleaners is the prop clean and does it reach full pitch. Are you getting over heating when when you run it hard is the Saltwater heat exchange clear. And are the fans running w/fresh air. Last is the turbo carbined up. All these will cause rpm loss. It is not an easy item to solve. We never run wide open a diesel likes a load it does not need to go full bore all the time.

We have a SM2K with an Autoprop. We have been getting somewhat dark exhaust from our engine so we've had a Yanmar serviceman look at it. The Yanmar 4JH3-TE engine is rated at 3800 RPM. When testing the boat on calm water (clean hull, clean prop...), we could got 3100 max RPM, similar to when I purchased the boat. Referring to the maintenance log, the original owner got 3250 max RPM when he tested it around the time of purchase from Amel.

The Yanmar guy I am working with tells me this RPM is an indication the engine is overloaded and is a likely cause for the exhaust. He went further and says that Yanmar would not warranty the engine in this application, given the load, gearing ratio, propeller combination prevents it from reaching the spec'd RPM. The implication being it is a flawed design, which I find hard to believe.

I contacted Amel several months ago about this and didn't get a response. Has anyone been told this before? Is there an explanation for the design?

Thanks in advance,
