Re: [Amel] Re: Main outhaul gearbox

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi Judy and Bill, thanks for this. Have looked at those references and hope I can find a puller of sufficient dimensions. If not in the past  have found a gas torch judiciously applied works wonders and as I have all the outer parts off the offending area is exposed. I will let you know how I get on. Appreciate the help. Certainly agree that an annual drawing and greasing of the offending shaft would be wise, if not 6 monthly, how much easier than a five yearly battle. When I was young a very wise man told me that grease and oil are the cheapest spare parts you can buy. I have added grease nipples to each of the main and jib furlers, and the outhaul gearboxes.
The people you mention Bill, are they on the staff here?

Hi all, having successfully stripped and re-bearinged the main furler gearbox am doing the outhaul.

The whole box is dis-ssembled leaving just the top bearing and housing hanging on the centre shaft. I have tried various methods of pulling or pushing it up to no avail. Is there something I am missing? Can anyone advise

Hi Danny,
We anchored next to you in Annapolis where you staved off an attack by that runaway schooner.

There are several postings on this, so you might search for "outhaul shaft".. Seems like the best way is with a puller or by pounding a 4" non stainless metric bolt and pounding...

Question





Hello Drew, The gypsy on mine is also worn and I have ordered a new one from
the Maltese Agent. The old one has these numbers on it;- 0.10 ,P30 and
3/8HT. I might add that I severely damaged the layshaft and the keyway
grooves on the gypsy about three years ago because I had failed to keep the
clutches well greased. This resulted in the chain running out at high speed
uncontrollably until the clutch seized up and stopped turning thus doing the
damage by trying to stop the chain instantly which it could not do thus
jumping violently.
Luckily we were in Croatia and a local engineer managed to open the housing
after using various heating methods until he finally used oxyacetaline so
that he could remove the layshaft and gypsy to cut new keyways and make new
keys. It was a brilliant job and we were lucky to find him with the aid of
the local charter boat manager.

I hope this helps,best wishes, Anne and John, SM319

Hi,
The IMTRA site has very good pdf documents including a Chain Wheel chart http://www.imtra.com/product/anchoring_systems/lofrans/lofrans_horizontal_electric_winches/tigres/lw400an_1200_1.htm There is also a good parts list and owners manual. These are worth saving to your laptop. There also also some good postings in their Knowledge Base. The link is for the 24v but they also have page for the 12v.

Re: Mid-Ship Dock Cleats on the Maramu

Howard Berger
 

Thanks K & J.

Yes, the fact that the toe rail is hollow bothers me. I also don't like putting lateral pressure on it so we might just end up bolting a cleat to the deck :(

Whatever we wind up doing, I'll post the pictures in the (growing) Jazz photo album.

Be advised that the toerail while stout, is hollow.
You can get up into the hollow area in the upper lockers and
epoxy a block so you have a solid bolting area. Otherwise,
you may have a leak into the upper cabinets, as I first did
much to Judy's distress.

Also on a day when the boat is moving the springs through the
openings in the toerail make a lot of noise. Sometimes we
use a large shakle in the jib sheet block bracket and it is
quiet.

I will send a picture tonight.   It is on the inboard side of the toe rail and potentially could be a toe breaker but there is a genoa car adjuster with lined running above it that helps keep people from walking too close to the outer rail.  I'll post the pictures later.

Hi Bob.
Does the cleat lie over the genoa track on the toe rail?  Do you have any pictures?
We've considered through bolting a cleat to the side deck but it would have to be located far enough away from the toe rail to be workable and then creates an "obstacle" and something to trip over.

On our Maramu we have a stainless cleat mounted horizontally to the toe rail amidship.  It's through bolted through the toe rail and is very secure.  I can pass springlines or breast lines through the opening in the toe rail.  It works well for me.

Now that JAZZ, Maramu 144, is getting ready to finally go back into the water after a 3 year refit I'm puzzled by the lack of mid-ship dock cleats. To those of you with Maramus, how to you rig spring lines? Has anyone installed cleats? One solution we're considering is fitting cleats that attach to the genoa sheet tracks.

On our Maramu we have a stainless cleat mounted horizontally to the toe rail amidship.  It's through bolted through the toe rail and is very secure.  I can pass springlines or breast lines through the opening in the toe rail.  It works well for me.

Now that JAZZ, Maramu 144, is getting ready to finally go back into the water after a 3 year refit I'm puzzled by the lack of mid-ship dock cleats. To those of you with Maramus, how to you rig spring lines? Has anyone installed cleats? One solution we're considering is fitting cleats that attach to the genoa sheet tracks.

Thanks for your help.

hi there

i put some cleats on the genoa sheet track as you mentioned. they worked very well, but i never really put too much force on it. spring lines i always rigged from the bow or stern cleats - just have long enough lines with you, they even damp better with the lenght...

only once i used them for the mooring lines which come out of the water. because the marina was very small and we actually too long, they were anchored below our bow and we ran them midships. but then the force was more downwards.

one hint: always flush them to get/keep the salt out.

Re: [Amel] Transmission dipstick

Pat we use AFT in the Amel transmission. DO NOT use motor oil. When checking ATF level the level is a noted in the earlier posting un-screwed.
By the way it is a good idea to change the AFT at least once a year and pay attention to the color and any "dust"

Richard, A previous post to my question said that on some transmissions you
do not screw the dipstick down to take a measure. Does that apply to our
trans. and what type or weight of fluid?My previous boat used motor oil but
this appears to be a trans. fluid.
Thanks, Pat

My transmission dipstick has only one mark, an indented ring approx. an inch from the end,does this mark represent full? I ask because it is so low on the stick and I would expect a low and full mark.I assume it is the full mark but thought I had better varify my assumption.
Thanks,
