Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Ian,

Totally understand! No problem, just curious so was Paul!

Enjoy the definitely cooler London! May be even the Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend!

Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre, 
 Sorry, I' m not on the boat. 37-40 C is not our cup
of tea, so we retreat to the mere 20's of London for
July and August.

Good
morning Ian, thanks for the information. 

Do you happened to know the size of the O Ring?  I had mine
measured, but not sure if this is accurate... 


Sincerely, Alexandre

 Hi Alexandre,

                                 The
first

 time we changed the oil in our propeller leg it was done
by

 an Amel engineer at La Rochelle.  He advised me that the
O

 rings that came already fitted to the bronze piece were
not

 always true and that before inserting

  the new seals you should do a trial  fit of  the
bronze

 piece to ensure that the O ring  that came with it was
a

 tight fit. As a result I bought about 10 spare O rings.
I

 have probably changed the bronze piece about 8 times so
far.

 On each occasion the O ring

  that came with the bronze piece was a good fit, but I
am

 prepared in case that should not be the case.

 Ho now I

 understand your question. 

 

 I had it measure once at:  39.5 x 3

 

 Therefore, I don’t think this is necessary to have
spare

 as you will need to change the entire bronze fitting every
2

 years and Amel sells it with the o ring. 

 

 

 

 

 Sincerely, Alexandre

I got the same response from one of the top locksmith's in Brisbane but in hawking it around I found a few of the smaller key cutters / shoe repairer types in the mall's had no problem in making it up for me. Like Gary says, suggest you try a few more locksmiths before going to the expense of a new and probably inferior lock.

Alan,

It is an ordinary French key blank.

If I were in the French Islands I could easily get some for you.

Several years ago I went to my local locksmith and he was able to order the blanks and make the keys for me (here in Utah, USA).  It took about a week for him to get the blanks but it didn't seem to be a big deal.  Perhaps try another locksmith with more savvy.  I had five keys made and as I recall they were about $8.00 each.  The key/lock has more pins than an average run of the mill lock.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Key for companion way

Good morning Alan,

When I was in Texas I tried without success to make a new key.
Therefore in Fort Lauderdale, I found a locksmith that was able and made several.
I wish I had purchased additional blank keys…

I went to a professional key
cutter/locksmith to get a new key cut for the companion way
lock.He told me that he couldn't do
it as the Amel key is an unusual size and he couldn't
get the appropritely sized blank for
it.Does anyone have a source for a blank
for the Amel key

I got one done at Ace Hardware from a stock blank. They fellow had to cut away some of the boss on the inside edge to make it work but it dies; I just have to be a smidge careful not to insert it too far as that boss was the 'stop'. 

The brand name on the blank was "Select" but there isn't any number.Not a perfect fit, but it does work.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Fuel Polishing system

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

I'll add a things that I am sure everyone does.

  1. If at all possible, use a busy fuel dock. The busier, the better. When using a busy fuel dock, filter the first 20-40 liters...if all is clear with no water, fill freely.
  2. Also, I am sure that we all use some sort of fuel treatment. Eric's suggestion is good, or the enzyme-type treatment from StarBrite, or both. 
  3. Lastly, if your boat sits up for months at a time, open the inspection ports on the tank and do two things: Using a pump, extract at least a liter from the lowest point that you can reach, preferably just off the bottom and examine for water. If you get some water, repeat until you no longer get water. Then  tie a white cloth to the end of a broomstick and wipe the cloth against the side and bottom of the tank to examine how much crud is against the sides. A lot of crud will mean that you probably need the tank and fuel professionally cleaned.

Re: Fuel Polishing system

Alan Leslie
 

How does "excess fuel cool the injectors" when the only fuel that meets and passes through the injector is the fuel that enters the combustion chamber?
The "excess" fuel simply bypasses the injector...usually some cms before it and returns to the tank via the return line....it doesn't come anywhere near the injector.
I seriously think a lot of this stuff is hogwash.
If you have a clean tank and good filtration there is no need for "polishing"...as long as you keep the water and any debris away from the engine, all will be fine. If your filters are clogging, you have a problem with gunk in your fuel tank...clean it.

Fuel Polishing system

Mohammad Shirloo
 

Hi every one;


We'd like to add a fuel polishing system that would also allow fuel to be pumped into the tank through the added filter so that it would be filtered prior to going into the tank. 


I would like to hear what systems and connections you guys have used and what experiences you have had.


All input is greatly appreciated.

Hi Eric;

Thanks for sharing your experience. All good information. I wonder if the Volvo D-3 110 would have any different requirements and therefore be more sensitive to a 2 micron filter that your Yanmar?

I also have plans to add a fuel polishing system that would also allow new fuel to be filtered prior to going to the tank. I will post under a new conversation.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: 2 micron filters

eric freedman
 

My dual racor filter shows little if no vacuum.

I have been using the 2 micron filter now for 5400 engine hours and just changed the nozzles on the injectors which looked very good. We had no wind for 7 days and ran through 250 gallons of diesel and the vacuum gauge still read no vacuum. Possibly it is the Howells fuel treatment. I also filter my fuel through a huge Racor filter (used in high volume fuel pumps) using a pump. (thanks Ian).

I have spoken with the yanmar mechanics about this on many occasions and they agree that if my tank is clean and the fuel is clean a 2 micron  works well.

 

On my previous boat when I was restoring it, I used a 2 micron filter to clean the bottom of the tank. It lasted 2 minutes.  If you feel that you have bad fuel or crud in the tank I would use a 30 micron filter.

I keep a few of those on board in case I get a load of very bad fuel.

The unused fuel pumped thru the fuel system serves to cool and lubricate the injectors and injection pump.  The 2 micron filters will reduce the rate of flow.  Whether it is too much is hard to tell.  I would stay with the recommended 30's.

This is not a smart-ass answer/remark.

When is the last time that the valve lash was adjusted on your engine and/or generator?  If the valve lash is not adjusted correctly, you will get a lot of exhaust staining on the hull.

Hello Aty & Mohammed,

 

Had a big problem on previous boat… however, we had the tank sucked out, fuel polished, changed all filters then no more issue.

 

We’ve not had any problem since installing the following upgrade on Eleuthera: a pair of Racor 75900 with a 4 way valve.  (1-2-both-off)

 

We also use a bacteria killing agent at all times.  Also, for those who use the low sulfur diesel… we do… (no choice in most places) we add 1 liter of 2 stroke oil to each 500 liters.  Makes up some lubricity for the drier low sulfur stuff though it contributes to extra hull cleaning chore aft of the exhausts..

Hello everyone;

 

In talking to several different cruisers in the med, it appears that some have had some serious issues with bacterial or other types of growth in their diesel tanks leading to the need for disposal and deep cleaning of the fuel tanks.

 

I'd like hear others experiences and solutions to the problem in order to avoid the problem.

 

Thanks in advance
