Re: Anchor washing pump model

scentstone
 

Hi,

The seawater pump for anchor washing was just replaced this winter at Amel pontoon by the best at electrical and Amel stuff around : Fred Quintard

It was a part of our "Grande visite" works and you'll see attached pictures and Ref on the pump.

Of course, it works perfectly and we added a 3 way valve allowing to get salt water in the cockpit and avoiding to see crew going overboard at sea for getting salt water in a bucket for pre-wash of dishes.

Keep just in mind that this pump and the original one do not have pressure regulation so you should not close the end of any hose installed on it, just use the switch on the wheel panel to switch it on or off.

I hope it helps

Good morning,

my pump does not look like the one on your photo.  Looks like the sea water pump for the engine plus electrical motor. Pump is attached to the end of 24V motor. I will try to check it tomorrow if I have time to go to the boat.

Regards,

Slavko


Re: Anchor washing pump model

 

Michael & Robyn,

I am positive that you are incorrect. The 66b is a freshwater pump...photo below.

The original anchor wash pump for Amel SMs was the:
F.E.I.T Pompe
Model JDREX S40 24 volt
The same pump was then made and supplied to Amel by 
 A.M.F.A. and they used the same model: JDREX S40 24 volt
When A.M.F.A. stopped production the same pump was supplied by Reya using the same number, S40
Here is a photo of the S40:
image.png

The same situation happened with the original freshwater pump, the 66B, with the same suppliers above keeping the same number: 66B
Here is a photo of the 66b from my Amel Book:
image.png

For your information, there was a step-up model freshwater pump for late model SMs and all 54s. Its model number was 88b and it had the same progression of different suppliers as above. Here is a photo of the 88b:

I would email Amel and ask if they have any S40 repair kits.

Hi Slavko,

we have the same issue that the dc motor seems to have a short and pops the circuit breaker. I checked the brushes and they are clean and in good shape.
Our pump looks just like yours. Our Label isn't readable either, but somewhere in the forum I found a reference that is is an AMFA A66B, which kind of matches the label of ours with good will.
The DC motor can probably be replaced with a standard DC motor.
I am in the US and we are replacing ours with a PENTAIR SHURFLO PRO BLASTER II 4258 24V pump.
It isn't installed yet. I had to get NPT thread fittings hose barbs for 3/4" (19mm) hose. However it seems AMEL installed a 7/8" (22mm) hose. The fittings are all plastic and do not look as robust as the bronze fittings on the AMFA pump. It seems the AMFA A66B pump was also used as fresh water pump.
See the excellent documentation from nikimat: https://nikimat.com/fresh_water_pump_amfa.html

In your picture it looks like the pump is not mounted on its socket with the rubber dampers any more.
Will keep you posted how our project goes.

My original pump was under the port side V-berth. Sea water came from the through hull for the forward head. I believe subsequent boats used fresh water heads, and the anchor wash fed off the sea chest in the engine room.

Thank you for reply.

Is OEM pump available in Europe? Do you have a model number and manufacturer?

I did the same on mine. I tried to have the original pump rebuilt, but the cost was a tad more than just replacing it and like Tom, I added a longer hose and couldn’t be happier!

I was never really happy with the anchor wash as a whole. I have put in a hose, connected to the anchor wash hoses in the forward port locker. It does require a person up front to clean the chain and anchor, but at least it really does get cleaned. It can also be used to wash down decks with seawater.

Re: Both electric furlers no working

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS
 

Hi Mark, for the headsail since it goes neither way check at the breaker first. On 299 this is in the port forward locker in the forard cabin, the same breaker does the anchor winch and the headsail furler. It will trip on overload. Are you sure the furler wasnt snagged anywhere, eg spare halyard tangled at the top or the bearing at the top clogged with salt? The salt clogging can be simply fixed by dropping the sail and vigorously rinsing the bearing with fresh water. For the mainsail furler, since it will go one way the most likely suspect is stuck brushes or a poor elecrical connection. Be aware if it will only roll one way, say unroll, you can carry on until it is fully unrolled and then it will just happily roll in, albeit in the reverse way.

This pump is no longer available. It normally can be rebuilt without any issues.

A common problem is that the breaker is accidentally turned OFF. The breaker is normally on a box in the engine room on later SMs where the pump is also in the engine room. Early model SMs have the pump near the bow.

Re: Onan shuts down under load without shutdown codes

 

Mark,

Guessing from thousands of miles away.

The shutdown is because the block is too hot. 

Normally it should be about 80C under load and warmed up. However, the exhaust elbow is at the correct temperature. My guess is that the coolant is not circulating as it should, and therefore not cooling the block. The seawater side seems to be functioning correctly, but not the coolant side. That could be a number of things including the coolant (captive) pump, a loose fan belt on the captive pump, a stuck thermostat, an obstruction somewhere in the coolant path.

I would start with the thermostat. If you do not have a spare, you can temporarily remove it until you have one. You will likely need some PermaTex-type gasket material because those gaskets usually tear.

i've seen it once the Impeller didn't hold on the wave.

The level on the wave of the water pump that fixes the impeller and turns it was weared , so the impeller was in good condition but not worked because it slipped through the wave .
Good luck

Re: Both electric furlers no working

Ian Park
 

I had intermittent issues with the furling motors. It was the brushes sticking. A couple of taps with a hammer ( reversed to use end of the handle, wood or rubber) seemed to cure it for a short while. 

An accumulation of carbon dust can make them stick. I have just put new carbon brushes and springs in all three of mine and they work perfectly now. The motors on the Santorin are all redundant stock now. The mainsail ones were Fiat starter motors (12v) and the Genoa motor was Bosch, but Bosch in Germany didn’t recognise the serial number. The guy who obtained new brushes and springs got them from a Polish company who have just started making them. I’ll find out the address when I get home again in October.
