Hi Bill,
Well the on going saga continues. I tried the sandpaper between the puller and shaft and also put 2 pipe clamps below the puller to assist in the friction on the shaft. I think it moved 2mm?? Looks like Gradiva is going to see land again.
Thanks again for your advice. I will let one and all know the outcome as well as the images that I have taken to record the process.

Kind Regards
Peter

Peter,

Before that tool was designed, the common practice was to disconnect the suspension cable to the motor. Place a wood block between where the motor and the housing meet, then from outside the boat, raise and plull down hard on the bow thruster. If you do this, be sure that you have sprayed plenty of WD40 or other penetrating oil at the junction of the tube and the motor. It might take raising and pulling 10 to 12 times.

Also, if you have not already done so, you might try adding some grit between that tool and the tube. Maybe sandpaper folded over so that grit is on both sides. Possibly a machine shop can help you with something that will add friction between the tool and the shaft.

Hi,
I have now tried in vain to remove the bow thruster on my Mango. I made a puller as per the Amel tool but the shaft is very tight and the tool only slips on the outer shaft. Is this a common problem and has anyone had to dismantle the motor to get at the top of the spline?

If the process is the same as the SM, here are pictures I took when I did mine, following information written by Gary Silver and notes added by Bill Rouse.
Hope that helps.

Peter,the parts don't all look exactly
the same, but the process is the same as for the Super
Maramu.  The procedures documented on this Yahoo Group
apply to the Mango bow thruster as well.  Make sure you
don't break or loose anything, as Amel won't be any
help with parts for the Mango version.  The seals are
standard seals that can be purchased locally.  I've had
a hard time matching the o-rings and have been using the
same ones for a while.  The nylon screws can be purchased
locally.  The foam rings are a bit more difficult.  If you
can get the SM ones they will work.  Don't tell Amel
you're looking for parts for a Mango, they seemed to
have purged the spares, or just run out.  Last year I had
to fabricate a new fairing, which was challenging but
doable.  Good Luck.

Alex,

I did not install a temperature sensor.  I just closed the opening with a threaded cover.  I imagine that monitoring the temperature in the exhaust elbow would help one know if there was any blockage due to scale.  I just use an infra-red temperature gun on occasion to see if everything seems OK.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Engine mountreplacement

seagasm@...
 

I am going through the same exercise at present.I do have the Vetus catalog and at the time of writing, the four engine mounts appear to be that of part MITSTEUN. These are holding up the frame bed the engine (TMD22A) is attached to. There are two further mounts securing the drive unit, these appear to be either of the type, HY100 or HY150 or HY230. Incidentally, the four flexible couplings are part TYPE 6.

My question here at this point is: before I dismantle and replace the mounts above the "C" drive, am I required to provide some sort of support to prevent the unit from dropping out the bottom of the boat (sort of)?

Kind Regards.

Alex,



The original exhaust elbow failed with less than 900 hours on the engine. I replaced the elbow with the improved Yanmar part but purchased the stainless steel one from ebay for a spare when I found them later on. The ebay part is really well made and you can buy it with confidence.



You also asked about a turbocharger repair kit. I couldn’t find one for Yanmar. They only sell the complete new unit (stupid expensive). I have a friend that has the same engine and he was able to find one. There are only a couple of companies that manufacturer turbo chargers. He was able to figure out who made it and got a generic kit (sorry, I do not have the info). This unit is made by a third party and not by Yanmar. Rebuilding the turbo charger was beyond my skills, so I had mine rebuilt by a local shop for about $450.00. They worked mostly on auto turbochargers but had no problem working on the unit and getting the parts. Note: if you turbocharger has ceased up because saltwater backed up into the unit, replace it with a new one.







With best regards,



Mark

We are in Barcelona and replacing all of the salon interior cushions. So, in about two weeks we will have the original cushions for anyone who may want them. They are in reasonable condition with no tears or holes. They need cleaning. They are made of UltraSuede and is a beige or light tan color. If you want these and are in the area, they are yours.

Andrew,
special thanks to you, because we overheated the motor 6 months ago, during a critical manoeuvre (hum... quite some smoke), and I had not the courage until now to open, check and inspect it. Next September, during the annual ship overhaul, I know now how I will open the motor and check what may have happen....
Thanks again and fair winds

Hello to all, the original YANMAR 4JH4-HTE EXHAUST mixing elbow has a plug with a hex screw cap, does anyone in this Group know what this is for? Secondly, has anyone installed a zinc on this elbow? I´ve read about corrosion issues and the ridiculous price of a Yanmar spare. Alex Paquin

Alex,

The plug is not for anything. It might have a function for an engine other than the 4JH4. There are no zincs located on the Yanmar engines installed in Amels.

Yanmar made some improvements to the elbow and has since used a thicker metal (aluminum?). They did not change the part number but cross referenced it. It is still stupid expensive. But, they now last longer than the original design.

Here is a less expensive stainless steel option: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yanmar-Stainless-Steel-Exhaust-Mixing-Elbow-4JH3-HTE-4JH3-4JH4-DTE-/331327810253

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] YANMAR 4JH4-HTE EXHAUST MIXING ELBOW - PLUG AND ZINCS

Hello to all, the original YANMAR 4JH4-HTE EXHAUST mixing elbow has a plug with a hex screw cap, does anyone in this Group know what this is for?

Secondly, has anyone installed a zinc on this elbow? I´ve read about corrosion issues and the ridiculous price of a Yanmar spare.

The plug is for an optional temperature sensor.

Alex,



The plug is not for anything. It might have a function for an engine other than the 4JH4. There are no zincs located on the Yanmar engines installed in Amels.



Yanmar made some improvements to the elbow and has since used a thicker metal (aluminum?). They did not change the part number but cross referenced it. It is still stupid expensive. But, they now last longer than the original design.



Here is a less expensive stainless steel option: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yanmar-Stainless-Steel-Exhaust-Mixing-Elbow-4JH3-HTE-4JH3-4JH4-DTE-/331327810253

Alex,

There is an incredibly beautiful cast stainless steel elbow available on ebay for that engine.

I installed one. It is a beautiful casting with the ends machined.

Looks like it will last forever.

Can anyone advise if there is a rebuild kit with seals and bearings for the YANMAR 4JH4-HTE turbocharger? If so, is there a part number for this kit?

Eberspächer D5 Installation

Sat Jul 25, 2015 3:52 pm (PDT) . Posted by:
svperegrinus

Nautic-Elec just completed an installation of a diesel heater on Peregrinus. Nothing out of the ordinary, as No. 350 already had the Amel forced ventilation system; essentially, the two original Jabsco fans get cut out, and the heater is installed where the fans originally went. The factory ducting in the locker is then upgraded to heat-shielded ducting; a diesel line and a little pump must also be fit, and the heater requires a combustion exhaust which forces perforation of the hull about a meter above the waterline.


Some random items learned during the process:


1. Newer Super Maramu 2000s had the air inlet relocated to the base of the little portside locker at the base of the mizzen mast. We used the old inlet in the backrest of the long portside bench; other than the fact this older inlet can get accidentally blocked by its cover or by a cushion, the reason for the relocation wasn't otherwise made explicit.


2. Newer Super Maramu 2000s had a closable outlet in the steel tube that runs across the aft heads. We had the choice of upgrading this tube, but the cost was high and one sees where this could be of great benefit to others, but given our wet gear habits and needs, we did not upgrade.


3. We were initially advised only one controller can be fit. This may or may not have been true with the old controllers still on sale for the U.S. and U.K. markets, but is not true for the latest generation controllers with yellow-orange backlit screens. We have:
Easystart Select Part 22 1000 34 13 00
Easystart Remote+ Part 22 1000 34 17 00
For example, we are able to start a heating or ventilation cycle from the bulkhead fixed controller in the salon and to turn it off from the RF wireless remote from a sleeping cabin. The exact desired temperature can be adjusted from either controller, and the current temperature is shown on both displays.
To run two controllers simultaneously you must hook up the purple wire. This is not shown on either manual for the above; it is shown on the "Special Functions and Diagnostics" separate technical manual no-one tells you about.


4. Eberspächer will ship you, at least in Europe, old-stock heaters with screen-less controllers, with reduced functionality and reduced expandability. Beware.


5. After experiencing moderate whine on the aft cabin outlet (same as the old ventilation system), we upgraded the ducting with an Eberspächer silencer. Upside: the outlet is entirely quiet. It is so quiet, you can now lightly hear the whine of the heater itself, enclosed in the portside locker. Downside: airflow is reduced. Winter will tell if this was a suboptimal decision!


Many thanks to Eric of s/y Kimberlite for all the aid, tips, and research undertaken. This installation would most certainly have been a lot less satisfactory without his incredible and friendly input in NY and in Ft L.

Hi Pat The bushes for the coupler are sold as the Vetus Coupler Repair Kit. A.S.A.P. Supplies, in the UK, have the kit for sale for about £13 Sterling. If the mounts you have are the round Vetus Hydro with the high profile, again they are for sale with ASAP. They are coded as the "mitsteun"; mounts. These are the mounts Amel were going to supply before the question was asked about their rating. On the Vetus technical data sheet, these mounts are recommended for 1,2 and 3 cylinder engines of up to 35hp, so have a look at them and see what you think.

Hi,
I have now tried in vain to remove the bow thruster on my Mango. I made a
puller as per the Amel tool but the shaft is very tight and the tool only
slips on the outer shaft. Is this a common problem and has anyone had to
dismantle the motor to get at the top of the spline?

Kind Regards

Peter,the parts don't all look exactly

Maramu. The procedures documented on this Yahoo Group
apply to the Mango bow thruster as well. Make sure you
don't break or loose anything, as Amel won't be any

standard seals that can be purchased locally. I've had
a hard time matching the o-rings and have been using the
same ones for a while. The nylon screws can be purchased
locally. The foam rings are a bit more difficult. If you
can get the SM ones they will work. Don't tell Amel
you're looking for parts for a Mango, they seemed to
have purged the spares, or just run out. Last year I had
to fabricate a new fairing, which was challenging but
doable. Good Luck.

Re: Amel Mango Bow Thruster removal.

Peter,

Before that tool was designed, the common practice was to disconnect the
suspension cable to the motor. Place a wood block between where the motor
and the housing meet, then from outside the boat, raise and plull down hard
on the bow thruster. If you do this, be sure that you have sprayed plenty
of WD40 or other penetrating oil at the junction of the tube and the motor.
It might take raising and pulling 10 to 12 times.

Also, if you have not already done so, you might try adding some grit
between that tool and the tube. Maybe sandpaper folded over so that grit is
on both sides. Possibly a machine shop can help you with something that
will add friction between the tool and the shaft.

Re: Amel Mango Bow Thruster removal.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the advice. I am trying to remove the thruster in the water if I
can but will lift it out if needed. I will try the sandpaper idea first and
see if that is a solution.

Kind Regards

Peter,

Before that tool was designed, the common practice was to disconnect the
suspension cable to the motor. Place a wood block between where the motor
and the housing meet, then from outside the boat, raise and plull down hard
on the bow thruster. If you do this, be sure that you have sprayed plenty of
WD40 or other penetrating oil at the junction of the tube and the motor. It
might take raising and pulling 10 to 12 times.

Also, if you have not already done so, you might try adding some grit
between that tool and the tube. Maybe sandpaper folded over so that grit is
on both sides. Possibly a machine shop can help you with something that will
add friction between the tool and the shaft.

Hi,
I have now tried in vain to remove the bow thruster on my Mango. I made a
puller as per the Amel tool but the shaft is very tight and the tool only
slips on the outer shaft. Is this a common problem and has anyone had to
dismantle the motor to get at the top of the spline?

If the process is the same as the SM, here are pictures I took when I did
mine, following information written by Gary Silver and notes added by Bill
Rouse.
Hope that helps.

Peter,the parts don't all look exactly
the same, but the process is the same as for the Super
Maramu. The procedures documented on this Yahoo Group
apply to the Mango bow thruster as well. Make sure you
don't break or loose anything, as Amel won't be any
help with parts for the Mango version. The seals are
standard seals that can be purchased locally. I've had
a hard time matching the o-rings and have been using the
same ones for a while. The nylon screws can be purchased
locally. The foam rings are a bit more difficult. If you
can get the SM ones they will work. Don't tell Amel
you're looking for parts for a Mango, they seemed to
have purged the spares, or just run out. Last year I had
to fabricate a new fairing, which was challenging but
doable. Good Luck.

Hi Peter

Great. Is that a SM Red line? I guess it won't be much difference to a 1995 SM, but lets see what the Irish Survey office says. Could you email me a copy of your tonnage certificate?

You have already helped me enormously!

Thanks

Hi Peter, Could you post the pic on the forum...? please ?
I for one would be very interested to see this as I have had registration problems vis a vis surveys / tonnage certificates also.

Super Maramu 2000 Salon Interior

We are in Barcelona and replacing all of the salon interior cushions. So, in about two weeks we will have the original cushions for anyone who may want them. They are in reasonable condition with no tears or holes. They need cleaning. They are made of UltraSuede and is a beige or light tan color. If you want these and are in the area, they are yours.

Andrew,
special thanks to you, because we overheated the motor 6 months ago, during a critical manoeuvre (hum... quite some smoke), and I had not the courage until now to open, check and inspect it. Next September, during the annual ship overhaul, I know now how I will open the motor and check what may have happen....
Thanks again and fair winds

Hello to all, the original YANMAR 4JH4-HTE EXHAUST mixing elbow has a plug with a hex screw cap, does anyone in this Group know what this is for? Secondly, has anyone installed a zinc on this elbow? I´ve read about corrosion issues and the ridiculous price of a Yanmar spare. Alex Paquin

Alex,

The plug is not for anything. It might have a function for an engine other than the 4JH4. There are no zincs located on the Yanmar engines installed in Amels.

Yanmar made some improvements to the elbow and has since used a thicker metal (aluminum?). They did not change the part number but cross referenced it. It is still stupid expensive. But, they now last longer than the original design.

Here is a less expensive stainless steel option: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yanmar-Stainless-Steel-Exhaust-Mixing-Elbow-4JH3-HTE-4JH3-4JH4-DTE-/331327810253

Alex,

There is an incredibly beautiful cast stainless steel elbow available on ebay for that engine.

I installed one. It is a beautiful casting with the ends machined.

Looks like it will last forever.

Eberspächer D5 Installation

Sat Jul 25, 2015 3:52 pm (PDT) . Posted by:
svperegrinus

Nautic-Elec just completed an installation of a diesel heater on Peregrinus. Nothing out of the ordinary, as No. 350 already had the Amel forced ventilation system; essentially, the two original Jabsco fans get cut out, and the heater is installed where the fans originally went. The factory ducting in the locker is then upgraded to heat-shielded ducting; a diesel line and a little pump must also be fit, and the heater requires a combustion exhaust which forces perforation of the hull about a meter above the waterline.


Some random items learned during the process:


1. Newer Super Maramu 2000s had the air inlet relocated to the base of the little portside locker at the base of the mizzen mast. We used the old inlet in the backrest of the long portside bench; other than the fact this older inlet can get accidentally blocked by its cover or by a cushion, the reason for the relocation wasn't otherwise made explicit.


2. Newer Super Maramu 2000s had a closable outlet in the steel tube that runs across the aft heads. We had the choice of upgrading this tube, but the cost was high and one sees where this could be of great benefit to others, but given our wet gear habits and needs, we did not upgrade.


3. We were initially advised only one controller can be fit. This may or may not have been true with the old controllers still on sale for the U.S. and U.K. markets, but is not true for the latest generation controllers with yellow-orange backlit screens. We have:
Easystart Select Part 22 1000 34 13 00
Easystart Remote+ Part 22 1000 34 17 00
For example, we are able to start a heating or ventilation cycle from the bulkhead fixed controller in the salon and to turn it off from the RF wireless remote from a sleeping cabin. The exact desired temperature can be adjusted from either controller, and the current temperature is shown on both displays.
To run two controllers simultaneously you must hook up the purple wire. This is not shown on either manual for the above; it is shown on the "Special Functions and Diagnostics" separate technical manual no-one tells you about.


4. Eberspächer will ship you, at least in Europe, old-stock heaters with screen-less controllers, with reduced functionality and reduced expandability. Beware.


5. After experiencing moderate whine on the aft cabin outlet (same as the old ventilation system), we upgraded the ducting with an Eberspächer silencer. Upside: the outlet is entirely quiet. It is so quiet, you can now lightly hear the whine of the heater itself, enclosed in the portside locker. Downside: airflow is reduced. Winter will tell if this was a suboptimal decision!


Many thanks to Eric of s/y Kimberlite for all the aid, tips, and research undertaken. This installation would most certainly have been a lot less satisfactory without his incredible and friendly input in NY and in Ft L.

Hi Pat The bushes for the coupler are sold as the Vetus Coupler Repair Kit. A.S.A.P. Supplies, in the UK, have the kit for sale for about £13 Sterling. If the mounts you have are the round Vetus Hydro with the high profile, again they are for sale with ASAP. They are coded as the "mitsteun"; mounts. These are the mounts Amel were going to supply before the question was asked about their rating. On the Vetus technical data sheet, these mounts are recommended for 1,2 and 3 cylinder engines of up to 35hp, so have a look at them and see what you think.

Hi,
I have now tried in vain to remove the bow thruster on my Mango. I made a
puller as per the Amel tool but the shaft is very tight and the tool only
slips on the outer shaft. Is this a common problem and has anyone had to
dismantle the motor to get at the top of the spline?

Kind Regards

If the process is the same as the SM, here are pictures I took when I did
mine, following information written by Gary Silver and notes added by Bill

Peter,the parts don't all look exactly
the same, but the process is the same as for the Super
Maramu. The procedures documented on this Yahoo Group
apply to the Mango bow thruster as well. Make sure you
don't break or loose anything, as Amel won't be any
help with parts for the Mango version. The seals are
standard seals that can be purchased locally. I've had
a hard time matching the o-rings and have been using the
same ones for a while. The nylon screws can be purchased
locally. The foam rings are a bit more difficult. If you
can get the SM ones they will work. Don't tell Amel
you're looking for parts for a Mango, they seemed to
have purged the spares, or just run out. Last year I had
to fabricate a new fairing, which was challenging but
doable. Good Luck.

Re: Amel Mango Bow Thruster removal.

Peter,

Before that tool was designed, the common practice was to disconnect the
suspension cable to the motor. Place a wood block between where the motor
and the housing meet, then from outside the boat, raise and plull down hard
on the bow thruster. If you do this, be sure that you have sprayed plenty
of WD40 or other penetrating oil at the junction of the tube and the motor.
It might take raising and pulling 10 to 12 times.

Also, if you have not already done so, you might try adding some grit
between that tool and the tube. Maybe sandpaper folded over so that grit is
on both sides. Possibly a machine shop can help you with something that
will add friction between the tool and the shaft.

Hi,
I have now tried in vain to remove the bow thruster on my Mango. I made a
puller as per the Amel tool but the shaft is very tight and the tool only
slips on the outer shaft. Is this a common problem and has anyone had to
dismantle the motor to get at the top of the spline?

Peter,the parts don't all look exactly
the same, but the process is the same as for the Super
Maramu. The procedures documented on this Yahoo Group
apply to the Mango bow thruster as well. Make sure you
don't break or loose anything, as Amel won't be any
help with parts for the Mango version. The seals are
standard seals that can be purchased locally. I've had
a hard time matching the o-rings and have been using the
same ones for a while. The nylon screws can be purchased
locally. The foam rings are a bit more difficult. If you
can get the SM ones they will work. Don't tell Amel
you're looking for parts for a Mango, they seemed to
have purged the spares, or just run out. Last year I had
to fabricate a new fairing, which was challenging but
doable. Good Luck.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the advice. I am trying to remove the thruster in the water if I
can but will lift it out if needed. I will try the sandpaper idea first and
see if that is a solution.

Kind Regards

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] YANMAR 4JH4-HTE EXHAUST MIXING ELBOW - PLUG AND ZINCS

eric freedman
 

Not only is it sturdy but when you compare it to the yanmar unit you will notice that the exhaust from the engine in the elbow is directed directly down the center of the exhaust hose and not to one side as on the Yanmar.

A much better design.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Engine mountreplacement

joseph mc donnell
 

Pat 
       The basic weight listed for the Perkins M50/ Volvo is 225 KG, add in the the gear box and frame and it up to about 275kg. I searched high and low for the original mounts but was unable to find any, I could not even find an image of them through Google  search.  
As the engine was originally used in the Austin Montego/ Maestro through the 80s and early 90s, try to get your hands on the Haynes Montego/ Maestro  2litre diesel manual, either through ebay or amazon. For parts and information have a look at the Austin Montego club ( I joined).  
The Perkins on Khamsin has over 6500 hours on the clock and I intend to get it past the 10,  so finding a source of parts, other than those with a "marine" badge, is always worth it.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Engine mountreplacement

Patrick McAneny
 

Joe, Thanks for the info. It sounds that the mounts if rated for 35 hp. and 3cylinder would not be the right mount for a SM. Do they not offer a mount designed for a larger engine? I was going to check with Vetus here but need to know the weight of the engine. Does anyone know the source of Amel's original mounts?  Thanks , Pat

Hi Pat
The bushes for the coupler are sold as the Vetus Coupler Repair Kit.  A.S.A.P. Supplies, in the UK,  have the kit for sale for about £13 Sterling. If the mounts you have are the  round Vetus Hydro with the high profile, again they are for sale with ASAP. They are coded as the "mitsteun" mounts. These are the mounts Amel were going to supply before the question was asked about their rating. On the Vetus technical data sheet, these mounts are recommended for 1,2 and 3 cylinder engines of up to 35hp, so have a look at them and see what you think.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel Mango Bow Thruster removal.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the advice. I am trying to remove the thruster in the water if I can but will lift it out if needed. I will try the sandpaper idea first and see if that is a solution.

Kind Regards

Peter,

Before that tool was designed, the common practice was to disconnect the suspension cable to the motor. Place a wood block between where the motor and the housing meet, then from outside the boat, raise and plull down hard on the bow thruster. If you do this, be sure that you have sprayed plenty of WD40 or other penetrating oil at the junction of the tube and the motor. It might take raising and pulling 10 to 12 times.

Also, if you have not already done so, you might try adding some grit between that tool and the tube. Maybe sandpaper folded over so that grit is on both sides. Possibly a machine shop can help you with something that will add friction between the tool and the shaft.

Hi,
I have now tried in vain to remove the bow thruster on my Mango. I made a puller as per the Amel tool but the shaft is very tight and the tool only slips on the outer shaft. Is this a common problem and has anyone had to dismantle the motor to get at the top of the spline?

If the process is the same as the SM, here are pictures I took when I did mine, following information written by Gary Silver and notes added by Bill Rouse.
Hope that helps.

Peter,the parts don't all look exactly
the same, but the process is the same as for the Super
Maramu.  The procedures documented on this Yahoo Group
apply to the Mango bow thruster as well.  Make sure you
don't break or loose anything, as Amel won't be any
help with parts for the Mango version.  The seals are
standard seals that can be purchased locally.  I've had
a hard time matching the o-rings and have been using the
same ones for a while.  The nylon screws can be purchased
locally.  The foam rings are a bit more difficult.  If you
can get the SM ones they will work.  Don't tell Amel
you're looking for parts for a Mango, they seemed to
have purged the spares, or just run out.  Last year I had
to fabricate a new fairing, which was challenging but
doable.  Good Luck.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel Mango Bow Thruster removal.

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Peter,

Before that tool was designed, the common practice was to disconnect the suspension cable to the motor. Place a wood block between where the motor and the housing meet, then from outside the boat, raise and plull down hard on the bow thruster. If you do this, be sure that you have sprayed plenty of WD40 or other penetrating oil at the junction of the tube and the motor. It might take raising and pulling 10 to 12 times.

Also, if you have not already done so, you might try adding some grit between that tool and the tube. Maybe sandpaper folded over so that grit is on both sides. Possibly a machine shop can help you with something that will add friction between the tool and the shaft.

Peter,the parts don't all look exactly
the same, but the process is the same as for the Super
Maramu.  The procedures documented on this Yahoo Group
apply to the Mango bow thruster as well.  Make sure you
don't break or loose anything, as Amel won't be any
help with parts for the Mango version.  The seals are
standard seals that can be purchased locally.  I've had
a hard time matching the o-rings and have been using the
same ones for a while.  The nylon screws can be purchased
locally.  The foam rings are a bit more difficult.  If you
can get the SM ones they will work.  Don't tell Amel
you're looking for parts for a Mango, they seemed to
have purged the spares, or just run out.  Last year I had
to fabricate a new fairing, which was challenging but
doable.  Good Luck.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Amel Mango Bow Thruster removal.

Peter Buckley <carhartt@...>
 

Hi,
I have now tried in vain to remove the bow thruster on my Mango. I made a puller as per the Amel tool but the shaft is very tight and the tool only slips on the outer shaft. Is this a common problem and has anyone had to dismantle the motor to get at the top of the spline?

Kind Regards

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] YANMAR 4JH4-HTE EXHAUST MIXING ELBOW - PLUG AND ZINCS

Alex,

There is an incredibly beautiful cast stainless steel elbow available on ebay for that engine.

I installed one. It is a beautiful casting with the ends machined.

Looks like it will last forever.

Hello to all, the original YANMAR 4JH4-HTE EXHAUST mixing elbow has a plug with a hex screw cap, does anyone in this Group know what this is for? 

Secondly, has anyone installed a zinc on this elbow? I´ve read about corrosion issues and the ridiculous price of a Yanmar spare.
