Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] RPMs

Pat, the fact you can get to 3000rpm in neutral doesn’t tell us much. It is the load that is causing the problem. The engine is not generating enough energy to offset the applied load. Fuel is energy. This usually means fuel issues. The more load, the more fuel is needed to create the horsepower.

 

Where you able to get to 3000 rpm right before you changed the filters? Or, was this something you did to try to fix the issue?

 

Here are some additional thoughts on fuel:

 

Do you have a lift pump for fuel? (not sure on the Volvo and your Amel). If so check the diaphragm,

Air in fuel lines (connections loose). The engine will pull air rather than fuel if it can.

O-rings sitting correctly on fuel filter give a good seal?

If you changed the fuel filter is the new one sitting correctly and sealed?

 

A couple of other thoughts:

 

Check for blockage in exhaust hose (not enough air to burn fuel)

I know you said you cleaned the prop but is it possible something is caught in it (piece of rope or fishing line)

 

Let’s hope it is something this simple J

 

 

 

 

With best regards,

Mark, Thanks for getting back . I used the same and correct filters. I observed that the linkage moved forward well beyond the 2200 point , but no further increase in rpms. The engine seems to run smoothly , if it were an injector would you have a noticeable telltale ? Is the fact that in neutral It gets to 3000 rpm mean anything?

Thanks,

Pat,

 

Here is a great page to give you some additional thoughts: https://www.sbmar.com/articles/understanding-low-power-troubleshooting/

 

White smoke is usually a sign of not enough air intake or failing fuel injector(s). However, white smoke is usually pretty noticeable. You say “a little white smoke” so I would not think it is an indication.

 

Also, another common issue most people do not check is the throttle linkage. Can you get RPM if you go down to the engine an manually move the throttle?

 

Else, I would start with the fuel system and work from there.

 “replaced both fuel filters” did you replace them with the same type?

 

Tubo failure will usually pump out black smoke.

I have not been able to get above 2200 rpms , normally I have always gotten to 3000 at full throttle on my Volvo TMD 22A . I just cleaned my fixed prop and replaced both fuel filters , still won't go beyond 2200 rpm. It will get above 3000 rpm in neutral and I notice a little white smoke. Any thoughts on what could cause the limited rpms in gear . I rebuilt the turbo 3 years ago. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I just read that the military has landed in the BVIs and St. Martin to restore order . That has to be a relief to those stuck there . Our thoughts and good wishes to everyone impacted by Irma.

Our aft Clima A/C unit comes on, and the compressor kicks in after a few seconds.  However, the fan unit does not start up at any of the three speeds.

I have searched the forum and found some information regarding blowers functioning at lower speed than normal, but nothing when the fan unit doesn’t work at all.

I was hoping for some information on where I should begin my trouble shooting.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Aft A/C Clima Blower Motor

Eric,

I think it depends on several factors: 
  1. On your SM2k, one of them is the fan motor START capacitor, the other two "fan capacitors" govern speed.
  2. And, BTW, the 3 capacitors are different μF on pre-SM2k models
  3. And, as late of a model SM that Paul has, he may actually have the newer control box which has only 1 capacitor for the fan. The newer control box is in all 54s and 55s.
Attached is a page out of my Amel Book which can add a little more to the question.

Re: Chain counter

greatketch@...
 

Kent,

Just to be sure it's clear, on our boat both the sensor AND the display units were changed to Quick models.  The Quick sensor is a hall effect switch, not the inductive sensor as on the original chain counter. I am pretty sure the Quick sensor would not be compatible with the original display unit.

My understanding is that the original sensor is a small coil, and as the magnet in the gypsy goes by it generates a current pulse, which is what counted.  In the Quick unit, the magnet closes a switch which what is counted for each rotation of the gypsy.

The Quick sensor just needs a pair of wires from the sensor to the display unit.  Any pair of wires will do. No need to pull new ones.

The current model chain counter from Quick (the CHC1203) looks pretty much identical in function to ours (CHC1202) but with more modern esthetics and display.  It is available from QuickUSA 


The Quick unit is more than just a counter, it can be (but does not HAVE to be) wired to the windlass control relays as well.  It is a smart controller, and has some cool features, but I find I rarely use them.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Main Mast Deck Light

I bought one of these bulbs on Amazon shortly after I bought my boat.  I put it in the mizzen fixture, but I believe it is the same fixture as on the main mast.  Considerably cheaper than the alternatives being mentioned here.  I can't vouch for how long it lasts, but I can tell you it has worked great for about a month.

Hi,

If you install the LED bulb in this fixture, be careful. My original fixture came apart due to the additional weight of the LED bulb. With the cooling fins I estimate it to be 2-3 times the weight of the conventional bulb.

The old fixture was torn at the point of assembly of the top and bottom sections. I reinforced this section on the new fixture by putting large washers on either side of bigger bolts.

I believe this will fix any future problems.

[Attachment(s) from greatketch@... [amelyachtowners] included below]

Harmonie has a deck light installed on the forward side of the mainmast that has "spontaneously disassembled" itself and--of course--all the bits bounced once on deck before disappearing overboard.  I am pretty sure at least some other SMs had spreader lights in lieu of a mast mounted deck light, but this does have the look of an original installation, and there is no evidence that spreader lights were ever installed.

 

Does anyone know the brand and a source for these--or if they are still available?  I have attached the best photos I can get from deck level of what remains.

Depending on the year of manufacture, the Control Unit (black box) has either 3 fan speed capacitors, or 1.

It is most likely a capacitor problem. 

Do you know if you have 3 fan capacitors or 1? Do you need more information?

We spoke to a friend in Cannes who is retired lawyer and lifelong Amel owner.  He is attending an Amel function Thursday where he will ask Amel's help for owners caught in the storm.  Also he is posting Alex's post from St Martin on a Cannes net so more I'll know of his and others dilemma. He  told us this morning  the government is sending foreign legion to restore order.  His email is below:

J'ai poste sur mon facebook et sur celui de mes amis de St martin mais pour l'instant c'est le chaos à St Martin.L'armee et 500 légionnaires et des commandos de police arrivent aujourd'hui à St Martin pour sécuriser l'île.C'est horrible et nous le plaignons beaucoup.Nous sommes en FRANCE et ne pouvons rien faire d'ici.J'ai envoyé à AMEL votre message et le témoignage d'Alex,COURAGE GAYLE NOUS VOUS EMBRASSONS ET ESPÉRONS DES JOURS MEILLEURS POUR VOUS REVOIR À ST MARTIN.

A message copied form the Amel owners group on Facebook, a call for help from Alexandre:

"From our friend Alexandre asking for help. Please read it. St Maarten.

Moral is low.
I don’t even want to mop the floor.
Just waiting for the generator to get the Wifi
The fridge is warm.
People, including the Hotel employee, are angry.
The government doesn’t sell fuel to civilians.
when we run out of diesel for the generator: no internet, no fridge, no stove, no water for the toilet nor shower and computers, phone, etc. will run out of batteries.
I really don’t see a way out of this.
10.00 they are having difficulties to start the generator.
The Hotel internet is down and I can’t access the one next door.
I just cry.
During the 2 hours the generator was running, all I did was trying to get Wifi.
Then, to make the thing worst, the Hotel which originally agree on $1500 plus water and electricity, now wants $2250 because they can not meter the electricity nor water I use?!?
We argue for one hour, I tell them I am taking back my diesel and selling it to the higher offer.
Finally we settle for $1600 all together, but I lost trust in them.
I no longer feel safe here, more and more I want to leave, but I also don’t want to loose all I remove from the boat.
18.30 the generator starts, but no internet anywhere.
20.00 finally an internet connection.
Just sending the message I wrote.
I am so tired, if you could please contact any Swiss or French consulate to let them know I am at Simpson Bay Suites
