Steve,
Isolating the Yanmar has been a hair-pulling experience...as much because isolated sensors are difficult to match.  Ask Yanmar if the sensors are the same for the 80HP and 110HP.  If not, look on the sides of the hex nut that is used to tighten the sensors and get the numbers stamped there.  That may be the only way to determine the specs of the sensors, because Yanmar will not give you that information.  
You'll need senders for the gauges, too.  Find the make and model of the gauge and contact them about isolated ground senders.
I will send you a schematic that Amel sent to me about how to isolate your engine.  It's in French, but

Hey Richard,

We are about to order the new Yanmar for Aloha, and are finding Yanmar USA not helpful regarding the isolation issues. For example, they will not provide isolated ground alternators without a 4 month lead time. The alternators are not a problem, as I can provide my own, but they also seem unable to provide isolated sensors and such. I guess my question is where does one get all the required components to isolate the engine, if the engine manufacturer can't provide them?

On another note, a very nice dual alternator pulley and bracket kit can be provided by Electromax in Ontario, Canada for $560.00. The kit will fit the 80hp Yanmar which we are buying, or the 110hp which shares the same block. I previously purchase an alternator and watermaker from Electromax, and have found them to be great people to work with. 

Regarding Kent's CDrive issues, I have to wonder how much of the problem was a result of the lack of isolation of the engine since that has been corrected, and he seems to still have issues with the prop zinc disappearing. Some of the problems seem incredibly difficult to track down. 

Congratulations on a successful delivery across the pond, and welcome back.

It's my understanding that it shouldn't cause a problem unless there is a fault in the engine's electrical system.  If there is, it can eat up your zincs almost overnight, then start working on the CDrive.
In my case I hauled out to paint the bottom, and discovered the prop zinc gone and rudder zincs almost gone.  While changing the prop shaft seals I discovered the shaft was about 1/3 eaten away as if a blow torch had been used on it.
I discovered a poorly installed charger/inverter that also had a fault, and poorly connected bonding system when I repowered with a Yanmar a few years ago.  I didn't understand the Amel grounding systems well enough at that time and the Yanmar was not isolated as Amel recommends.  I felt certain that the cause of my shaft problem was the charger/inverter and/or poorly bonded CDrive after re powering. 
 Isolating the new Yanmar is more complicated than it should be, and all hull potential readings were normal, so I elected to do the isolation later when I had all the necessary parts assembled.

After being back in the water only 5 weeks, I dove on the prop and discovered that the zincs were half gone.  This was in spite of all hull potential readings being in the "safe" range...but I never checked hull potential with the Yanmar or ONAN running.
When I get back to the boat next week, I expect to find a faulty alternator on the Yanmar.  If not, I'll let you know what I do find.  If that's what it is, the fault is grounded to the bonding system and would have destroyed my prop shaft again!
Before going back in the water I will have the Yanmar electrically isolated.
I will check hull potential monthly and weekly when on the dock with both the Yanmar and ONAN running,  the AC on, and the DC chargers running.
I won't stay connected to shore power unless I am on the boat.

I understand that the Amel system of isolating the bonding system from all AC and DC systems is what is done with metal-hulled boats, but can't confirm that.  It makes a lot more sense to me that that ABYC system of connecting all AC and DC systems to the bonding system.  It's another way that Capn Amel has good reason for designing his boats as he did.  Don't make changes without fully understanding why your boat is designed as it is.

More in a week or so!

Hi Richard,

Back in RI??  How many hours of sailing/engine did you do on the SM you moved from Goček?

Saw you had issues in Malta…

Hallo
Hanspeter,



I have only own my SM2K since 2012, so my experience is
limited.



I have the Volvo TMD 22 P (same as Perkins M80T) which is
rated for 78HP at 4500 RPM



Until 2 months ago, I was only able to reach 2100 to 2200
rpm (which gives 50 HP).

If you are not familiar with SM not able to reach high RPM,
search post on possible oversize propeller for the SM (at
least for the ones with the Volvo).



Earlier this year I had the propeller rebuild, I can reach
2500 rpm (which is 56 HP).

Note that the maximum torque is at 2500 rpm.



Mostly I motor at 1600 rpm, which gives me 5 knots, and use
less than 3.5 liter (less than 1 gallon) per hour.

Sometime I motor at 1800 rpm and I (think I) obtain 7 knots.


Every 10 hours, I increase the throttle to its max 2500 rpm
then reduce to 2400 rpm for a few minutes to clean
exhaust/turbo.

Personally I wish (for a sailing vessel) it was normally
aspirated, as I had the turbo rebuilt in 2012 then changed
in 2015.



If you want, I can post the TMD22P data.



Sincerely, Alexandre

SM2K #289 NIKIMAT

Thanks for the info Chris. It looks like 80 hp is

the way to go on our older boats due to the Cdrive

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] head sail furler grease

Just a good waterproof grease should be fine.  Some have added grease nipples and add grease periodically.  Search "grease Genoa Furler".

Hi All-

I have recently disassmbled the head sail furler so the electric motor can get serviced and the bolts that spin the unit can get tapped/re-drilled. Thank you all for your instruction/recommendations for this procedure. Now that I have done this hands on it is a rather straight forward procedure that makes much more sense hands on rather than over email instructions... if that makes sense.

Anyways, really quickly... Just wondering if Amel or any owners can recommend a grease to use for the unit? Will a multipurpose calcium or lithium based waterproof marine grease due or is something special required?

Many thanks!

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Repower

Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Steve, Hanspster,

interesting about the overheating.
Did it just happened or was it there before.
As I mentioned, I have the Volvo TMD22P with 4900 hours.
The temperature gage was showing 195*F or 95*C.
It felt a little warm to me, I would have prefer seeing 10 degree less.
But even after motoring for 14 hours would remain the same (which was a good sign).
The hour meter (changed in 2012) also was working on and off, and sometime the tachometer was going all the way.
When I went to Fort Lauderdale last year, I explained my concern to Diesel of America.
In short (different story), I was taken advantage off, $9000 later, I am running hotter… I am skipping the lie and non-sense replies (will be happy to go in detail on another post), after “5 months”, it was finally back to what it was.
At the end, an answer I don’t totally believe. I was told that theses engine run so cold that they made sensors and gages showing a higher temperature. (I had the gage checked and it shows the right resistance)
I had added a second temperature gage and it does show 20 degree less.
May be this will solve your overheating problem. But if it just happened, then a new engine is in order.

But with $9000 of expenses (not including spare alternator, injector, fuel pump, hoses, etc.) I thought I should have replace it since was probably half way to a new engine. Not sure about the labor cost.

The decision is yours, a balance between piece of mind, cost, etc.
Just be very careful about the grounding as the other mentioned. Based on Kent experience, this could cost you much much more time and money…

Hanspeter, thanks for the temperature informations!
Viet thanks for the info, I remembered you didn’t had the gage.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Since I seem to
have started this repower thread, I'll tell you why we
have decided to repower. As with any decision, I have
multiple reasons that have influenced our choice.

Our Perkins Prima has
4200+ hours, and has had various issues in the year and a
half we have owned the boat. Currently we have a overheating
problem that we cant seem to completely cure. If I keep
throwing money at it, we will probably eventually figure it
out, but who knows. The wiring harness for the entire engine
is old and brittle, and really needs to be replaced. The
engine panel warnings are not working, the tach just went
out, and a new panel is quite expensive. To rebuild the
engine, fix all the other bits and pieces, is going to cost
about 3/4 of the price of a new Yanmar. Part of the problem
in the USA is the cost of parts and labor doing a
rebuild.

We are about
embark on a 10 year circumnavigation, and the thought of a
reliable new engine with a warranty for 25% more $$$ than
rebuilding an old one seems like a good deal to me. I also
suspect when we sell the boat after our circumnavigation, we
will get a much better price with a mid time Yanmar vs a 32
year old Perkins with 7000 hours.

I guess only time will tell if we are
making the right choice, but I'm comfortable with it.
Also, we should be back on the water in 2 or 3 weeks, but
with a rebuild, we would probably loose most of the summer.
In our case, we have spent the last year re-fitting the
boat, are ready to go, and it is worth a few $$$ to not lose
our summer of sailing.

Steve

Frankly, I am at a loss as to why a person would
change an engine in the first place. We have the Perkins TMD
22A Turbo and it runs like a gem. I can still reach the hull
speed of over 8 knots and I can still power into a 30 knot +
head wind and still make way comfortably. The engine has
proved to be very reliable and economical to run. If you put
two identical Amel's side by side, one with a
Perkins/Volva 80hp and one with a Yamnah 110hp and ran them
flat out, I doubt if you would see any difference except a
larger hole in your pocket.
It is my opinion one would be better
of spending the money and giving your existing engine a full
overhaul. The Perkins is a very good engine and if the
maintenance is kept up, like any engine, it will provide
many hours of service. I know I can get parts anywhere in
the world so why bother?
Just my two bob's
worth.

Yes, Alan...

But, for those mechanics that may repower your Amel and for those who do not understand what Mr. Amel wanted, think of this:

When you are repowering your Amel with a C drive, where are you going to place that "shaft anode" (the one that normally protects the engine and transmission from electrolysis)? Think about it.

Best,

Bill

So what would be the consequences on not isolating the engine ´s negative on all electrical sensors, actuators and alternators?

Since I seem to have started this repower thread, I'll tell you why we have decided to repower. As with any decision, I have multiple reasons that have influenced our choice.

Our Perkins Prima has 4200+ hours, and has had various issues in the year and a half we have owned the boat. Currently we have a overheating problem that we cant seem to completely cure. If I keep throwing money at it, we will probably eventually figure it out, but who knows. The wiring harness for the entire engine is old and brittle, and really needs to be replaced. The engine panel warnings are not working, the tach just went out, and a new panel is quite expensive. To rebuild the engine, fix all the other bits and pieces, is going to cost about 3/4 of the price of a new Yanmar. Part of the problem in the USA is the cost of parts and labor doing a rebuild.

We are about embark on a 10 year circumnavigation, and the thought of a reliable new engine with a warranty for 25% more $$$ than rebuilding an old one seems like a good deal to me. I also suspect when we sell the boat after our circumnavigation, we will get a much better price with a mid time Yanmar vs a 32 year old Perkins with 7000 hours.

I guess only time will tell if we are making the right choice, but I'm comfortable with it. Also, we should be back on the water in 2 or 3 weeks, but with a rebuild, we would probably loose most of the summer. In our case, we have spent the last year re-fitting the boat, are ready to go, and it is worth a few $$$ to not lose our summer of sailing.

Frankly, I am at a loss as to why a person would change an engine in the first place. We have the Perkins TMD 22A Turbo and it runs like a gem. I can still reach the hull speed of over 8 knots and I can still power into a 30 knot + head wind and still make way comfortably. The engine has proved to be very reliable and economical to run. If you put two identical Amel's side by side, one with a Perkins/Volva 80hp and one with a Yamnah 110hp and ran them flat out, I doubt if you would see any difference except a larger hole in your pocket.


It is my opinion one would be better of spending the money and giving your existing engine a full overhaul. The Perkins is a very good engine and if the maintenance is kept up, like any engine, it will provide many hours of service. I know I can get parts anywhere in the world so why bother?

Just my two bob's worth.

Hallo Hanspeter,

To me it is not clear why many owners with the Volvo TMD22P can only reach 2200 rpm. I had injectors rebuilt, heat exchanger cleaned, etc. everything check, didn’t changed. Then propeller rebuild and now I reach 2500, still far from the maximum HP.
Note: tight at the dock, in gear, I can get higher rpm.
Several have mentioned the oversize propeller. I don’t know the answer for that.

But good point from Barry & Veit, why would you want to change your engine?
I don’t like the Turbo on mine, but other than that, twice had to motor for 14 hours and the engine did great. I now have 4900 hour and I am pretty confident (continuing the scheduled maintenance) that it will do 10.000 hours. And yes, I found it very economical too.

Viet & Barry do you have temperature gage on your TMD 22 P? I don’t think Veit has one, how about Barry? If yes what are the temperature at which ever rpm you motor.

Hallo Hanspeter,



I have only own my SM2K since 2012, so my experience is
limited.



I have the Volvo TMD 22 P (same as Perkins M80T) which is
rated for 78HP at 4500 RPM



Until 2 months ago, I was only able to reach 2100 to 2200
rpm (which gives 50 HP).

If you are not familiar with SM not able to reach high RPM,
search post on possible oversize propeller for the SM (at
least for the ones with the Volvo).



Earlier this year I had the propeller rebuild, I can reach
2500 rpm (which is 56 HP).

Note that the maximum torque is at 2500 rpm.



Mostly I motor at 1600 rpm, which gives me 5 knots, and use
less than 3.5 liter (less than 1 gallon) per hour.

Sometime I motor at 1800 rpm and I (think I) obtain 7 knots.


Every 10 hours, I increase the throttle to its max 2500 rpm
then reduce to 2400 rpm for a few minutes to clean
exhaust/turbo.

Personally I wish (for a sailing vessel) it was normally
aspirated, as I had the turbo rebuilt in 2012 then changed
in 2015.



If you want, I can post the TMD22P data.



Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi All:

I measured a couple of times when it was really warm and  the engine runs at ~168f degree on top of the valve housing.

Hallo Hanspeter,

To me it is not clear why many owners with the Volvo TMD22P can only reach 2200 rpm. I had injectors rebuilt, heat exchanger cleaned, etc. everything check, didn’t changed. Then propeller rebuild and now I reach 2500, still far from the maximum HP.
Note: tight at the dock, in gear, I can get higher rpm.
Several have mentioned the oversize propeller. I don’t know the answer for that.

But good point from Barry & Veit, why would you want to change your engine?
I don’t like the Turbo on mine, but other than that, twice had to motor for 14 hours and the engine did great. I now have 4900 hour and I am pretty confident (continuing the scheduled maintenance) that it will do 10.000 hours. And yes, I found it very economical too.

Viet & Barry do you have temperature gage on your TMD 22 P? I don’t think Veit has one, how about Barry? If yes what are the temperature at which ever rpm you motor.

Hallo Hanspeter,



I have only own my SM2K since 2012, so my experience is
limited.



I have the Volvo TMD 22 P (same as Perkins M80T) which is
rated for 78HP at 4500 RPM



Until 2 months ago, I was only able to reach 2100 to 2200
rpm (which gives 50 HP).

If you are not familiar with SM not able to reach high RPM,
search post on possible oversize propeller for the SM (at
least for the ones with the Volvo).



Earlier this year I had the propeller rebuild, I can reach
2500 rpm (which is 56 HP).

Note that the maximum torque is at 2500 rpm.



Mostly I motor at 1600 rpm, which gives me 5 knots, and use
less than 3.5 liter (less than 1 gallon) per hour.

Sometime I motor at 1800 rpm and I (think I) obtain 7 knots.


Every 10 hours, I increase the throttle to its max 2500 rpm
then reduce to 2400 rpm for a few minutes to clean
exhaust/turbo.

Personally I wish (for a sailing vessel) it was normally
aspirated, as I had the turbo rebuilt in 2012 then changed
in 2015.



If you want, I can post the TMD22P data.



Sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks for the info Chris. It looks like 80 hp is

the way to go on our older boats due to the Cdrive

issues.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Repower

Hi
Please check the prop is compatible with the new engine, for example is the rotation the same.
When Akwaaba ' s engine was changed we discovered that Volvo had taken over responsibility for the small engines when Caterpillar bought Perkins.
Enjoy your future cruising.
Cheers

Since I seem to have started this repower thread, I'll tell you why we have decided to repower. As with any decision, I have multiple reasons that have influenced our choice.

Our Perkins Prima has 4200+ hours, and has had various issues in the year and a half we have owned the boat. Currently we have a overheating problem that we cant seem to completely cure. If I keep throwing money at it, we will probably eventually figure it out, but who knows. The wiring harness for the entire engine is old and brittle, and really needs to be replaced. The engine panel warnings are not working, the tach just went out, and a new panel is quite expensive. To rebuild the engine, fix all the other bits and pieces, is going to cost about 3/4 of the price of a new Yanmar. Part of the problem in the USA is the cost of parts and labor doing a rebuild.

We are about embark on a 10 year circumnavigation, and the thought of a reliable new engine with a warranty for 25% more $$$ than rebuilding an old one seems like a good deal to me. I also suspect when we sell the boat after our circumnavigation, we will get a much better price with a mid time Yanmar vs a 32 year old Perkins with 7000 hours.

I guess only time will tell if we are making the right choice, but I'm comfortable with it. Also, we should be back on the water in 2 or 3 weeks, but with a rebuild, we would probably loose most of the summer. In our case, we have spent the last year re-fitting the boat, are ready to go, and it is worth a few $$$ to not lose our summer of sailing.

If you put two identical Amel's side by side, one with a Perkins/Volva 80hp and one with a Yamnah 110hp and ran them flat out, I doubt if you would see any difference except a larger hole in your pocket.


It is my opinion one would be better of spending the money and giving your existing engine a full overhaul. The Perkins is a very good engine and if the maintenance is kept up, like any engine, it will provide many hours of service. I know I can get parts anywhere in the world so why bother?

Just my two bob's worth.

Hallo
Hanspeter,



I have only own my SM2K since 2012, so my experience is
limited.



I have the Volvo TMD 22 P (same as Perkins M80T) which is
rated for 78HP at 4500 RPM



Until 2 months ago, I was only able to reach 2100 to 2200
rpm (which gives 50 HP).

If you are not familiar with SM not able to reach high RPM,
search post on possible oversize propeller for the SM (at
least for the ones with the Volvo).



Earlier this year I had the propeller rebuild, I can reach
2500 rpm (which is 56 HP).

Note that the maximum torque is at 2500 rpm.



Mostly I motor at 1600 rpm, which gives me 5 knots, and use
less than 3.5 liter (less than 1 gallon) per hour.

Sometime I motor at 1800 rpm and I (think I) obtain 7 knots.


Every 10 hours, I increase the throttle to its max 2500 rpm
then reduce to 2400 rpm for a few minutes to clean
exhaust/turbo.

Personally I wish (for a sailing vessel) it was normally
aspirated, as I had the turbo rebuilt in 2012 then changed
in 2015.



If you want, I can post the TMD22P data.



Sincerely, Alexandre

Thanks for the info Chris. It looks like 80 hp is

the way to go on our older boats due to the Cdrive

issues.

Hi,
I believe the rated full revs under load for the TMD22 is 2800rpm.

Hallo Hanspeter,

I have only own my SM2K since 2012, so my experience is limited.

I have the Volvo TMD 22 P (same as Perkins M80T) which is rated for 78HP at 4500 RPM

Until 2 months ago, I was only able to reach 2100 to 2200 rpm (which gives 50 HP).
If you are not familiar with SM not able to reach high RPM, search post on possible oversize propeller for the SM (at least for the ones with the Volvo).

Earlier this year I had the propeller rebuild, I can reach 2500 rpm (which is 56 HP).
Note that the maximum torque is at 2500 rpm.

Mostly I motor at 1600 rpm, which gives me 5 knots, and use less than 3.5 liter (less than 1 gallon) per hour.
Sometime I motor at 1800 rpm and I (think I) obtain 7 knots.
Every 10 hours, I increase the throttle to its max 2500 rpm then reduce to 2400 rpm for a few minutes to clean exhaust/turbo.
Personally I wish (for a sailing vessel) it was normally aspirated, as I had the turbo rebuilt in 2012 then changed in 2015.

If you want, I can post the TMD22P data.

Sincerely, Alexandre
SM2K #289 NIKIMAT

Thanks for the info Chris. It looks like 80 hp is
the way to go on our older boats due to the Cdrive
issues.
