Recommend him.

Hi Eric
Yes, this was 80W/90 gear oil.

Hi Alan

 

Ouch !! Just re-filled the C Drive oil for the 2nd time and new Micron 66 now going on now below that so cannot remove that drain plug again this haul-out as the lift machine is booked out a week ahead. Pity I was not reading ahead.. but yes, I do have that special "V" bolt.

 

Since this is the case I will probably haul-out again mid this year in Mackay, Cairns or Darwin before we head into Indonesia which is the only time I need that rope cutter fitted anyway. Will give me an opportunity to change the C Drive oil again and spray down the hull ahead of Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand proposed trip.

 

Thanks for that info.

Hi Colin.....

It's all in the manual that comes with the Spurs....

One thing tho', you do need a special C-drive drain bolt that has a V in it....it fits the stator part of the Spurs cutter, where the zinc is, to keep it still, while the rotor part, which is attached to the shaft (by little screws), rotates.

If you don't have that special drain bolt it can't work. They are available from Maude at Amel. 

Good luck

Good morning Colin,

Just in case you need pictures of the Spurs fitting, here are some pictures.
I need to organize better that section…

Alan
Thanks again. We have never had a
rope cutter fitted before but have purchased a Spurs one to
fit tommorow when the autoprop gets back from it's
bearing replacement service. . Will start another topic on
tips for fitting that shortly if there isn't good info
to hand on the site. Any tips on that would be handy since
you have had one fitted.
Cheers

Hi Colin,I always try to do everything
myself and only call in the "professionals" when I
get stuck.Yes I put Loctite Stud Lock on those
two screws AND also on the Spurs screws and on the one on
the Autoprop that goes down to the shaft....and the big
nut!Cheers AlanElyse

Definitely second Kent on that.

Single handing the boat, it takes me 45 minutes to set up the whisker pole.

It's great Jacob!  Easier than a
Spinnaker, you can sail as much as 20d or so off dead
downhill, roll the two sails up together to reef quickly, or
swing the ballooner over behind the Genoa if you have to
turn up into the wind in a pinch.  When I bought Kristy she
had a Spinnaker on board, but I've never used it.

Hi all.  
Are the dual articulating
whisker poles really awesome or not really all that
useful?  We're looking at a couple Maramus-- one, from
1983, seem to have come before that was introduced and has
only one pole and is lacking the framework in the shrouds. 
The other, from 1986, has dual pole setup.  Is that a huge
advantage, or no?  I've seen the Delos crew use them
and it definitely looks like it would be great for a long
downwind run, but I wonder what others think.
Thanks for you

Hi Alan

 

Ouch !! Just re-filled the C Drive oil for the 2nd time and new Micron 66 now going on now below that so cannot remove that drain plug again this haul-out as the lift machine is booked out a week ahead. Pity I was not reading ahead.. but yes, I do have that special "V" bolt.

 

Since this is the case I will probably haul-out again mid this year in Mackay, Cairns or Darwin before we head into Indonesia which is the only time I need that rope cutter fitted anyway. Will give me an opportunity to change the C Drive oil again and spray down the hull ahead of Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand proposed trip.

 

Thanks for that info.

Hi Colin.....

It's all in the manual that comes with the Spurs....

One thing tho', you do need a special C-drive drain bolt that has a V in it....it fits the stator part of the Spurs cutter, where the zinc is, to keep it still, while the rotor part, which is attached to the shaft (by little screws), rotates.

If you don't have that special drain bolt it can't work. They are available from Maude at Amel. 

Good luck

Colin,

You will have to have a “V” cut into the C drive drain plug to support the stationary portion of the

Spurrs line cutter. It might be easier to buy a new nut with the “V” from Amel.

Thanks again. We have never had a rope cutter fitted before but have purchased a Spurs one to fit tommorow when the autoprop gets back from it's bearing replacement service. . Will start another topic on tips for fitting that shortly if there isn't good info to hand on the site. Any tips on that would be handy since you have had one fitted.

Thanks Alan

Interestingly when I took my prop off I found those little allen key screws loose! Previously when I had this job done I got some local prop shaft professionals to do this task, but loaded them with Amel site information etc.

Did you put locktite on your screws to hold them in and tight on the shaft? I suspect mine will just work their way loose again?

Ok Colin..I'll get in the next few minutes
AND yes it is correct that the wearing ring turns with the shaft, that's why it wears where it is in contact with the lip seals...there's previously been a lot of discussion here about stainless units and push over stainless covers, but the reality is that every two years to replace it is not such a big deal I don't think. 
Trust it is all going well

Hi Colin,


Yes they screw on to the shaft...the wearing ring (Bague d'usure) turns with the shaft inside the seals.
Bill Rouse has posted very good information on the drive seal replacement in the files section. If you can't find it, email me and I'll send you a copy.
Very important that once you have pushed the 3 new seals in place, push in the wearing ring over the shaft, through the seals as far as it will go and THEN pull it out 1-2 mm and then tighten the two grub screws onto the shaft. 
Very important also that the seals are filled with grease, grease the inside and outside of the wearing ring before you push it in....its all in Bill's Info..

Thanks, I have it in now but will go back and pull it a little back from the seals then. I will look for Bill's post now, I had previously found a step by step instruction with pictures on the French Amel owners site which was quite handy for the overall replacement procedure but it does not get into the same detail as Bill's. 

So am I correct in assuming that the wearing out bearing spins with the shaft then?

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dual/articulating whisker poles

It's great Jacob!  Easier than a Spinnaker, you can sail as much as 20d or so off dead downhill, roll the two sails up together to reef quickly, or swing the ballooner over behind the Genoa if you have to turn up into the wind in a pinch.  When I bought Kristy she had a Spinnaker on board, but I've never used it.  It's hard to douse singlehanded, but not hard to put up.

Hi all.  

Are the dual articulating whisker poles really awesome or not really all that useful?  We're looking at a couple Maramus-- one, from 1983, seem to have come before that was introduced and has only one pole and is lacking the framework in the shrouds.  The other, from 1986, has dual pole setup.  Is that a huge advantage, or no?  I've seen the Delos crew use them and it definitely looks like it would be great for a long downwind run, but I wonder what others think.

Thanks for you thoughts!
Jacob

HI Colin.

The wearing out bearing just screws down to the shaft after you mount the 3 lip seals.

You then pull the bearing a few MM away from the seals. The bearing rotates inside the seals.

I'm just replacing our wearing bearing and looking at the 2 x little screw in keys (that hold the bronze wearing bearing in place?) which are screwed in with a #3 allen key, it puzzles me as to what these screw onto?

 

Do they screw up against the rotating shaft? (surely not?) or what do they screw into as I do not see a natural spot for them to go in?

 

Thanks
