Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Leaking sea water pump

Hi Warren,
I'm pretty sure that's a Jabsco pump with a lip seal, but's it's many years since I've rebuilt a 4-108.  You should be able to see the pump number on the face plate (may need to wire brush it to read the imprinted number). Readily available from many sources like TAD etc. Easy and inexpensive DIY rebuild vs. $350-ish for a new pump.

Thanks Craig. I appreciate the advice. The engine is the original Perkins 4.108.  I know the impeller is the Johnson 09-1027B-10. Would you know then from that limited info it would be a lip seal or a face seal?

Cheers,

Warren

Warren, 

Certainly not a super urgent matter that your sea water pump is leaking. Leaking behind the openings in the impeller casing is common sign of the lip seals (or face seals, if that's what your pump has) being worn out (you didn't tell us what kind of engine/pump you have). It's an easy and inexpensive DIY fix that you may want to put on your future PM schedule. Do rinse off the dripping sea water with fresh before it encrusts other stuff. If this has just started you can certainly run many more hours, monitoring the drips. Odd though that it only drips after engine shut down - I should think you'd see it dripping while the engine is running.

Good luck with it,

Libby's engine has over 6000 hours of use. The engine burns little or no oil and has served us well over the last 6 years.


I have purchased new injector nozzles at a reasonable price of $155.00 for all four. (parts4engines.com)

This is an order of magnitude cheaper than buying a complete unit for over $400.00 a piece.


I have disassembled the injectors (very simple) and cleaned everything.


Time to re-assemble, which from what I see is a simple...


My question. On some fuel injectors the pressure at which the injector opens can be set. 


This is performed by how much the body nut is tightened.


Does anyone know if this is the case for the TMD22 injectors? I do not see an adjustment nut (as seen on other units on youtube)


Aprreciate any help.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Keel bolts

Bill Fletcher
 

Hi  I own a 1984 MARAMU 179 I have spent some time finding a fresh water leaking keelboat. I found it and sealed and repainted the nut and bolt. In my armature opinion Amel is built with a lot of redundancy in the keel bolts just by shear number. Unless you see some cracking or movement I wouldn't worry about them. I have sail her over 7000 miles in the last six years.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Some advice with SAV@amel.fr

Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Cameron, 

Yes, but I doubt that they will have any parts for a Sharki because the last Sharki was built 28 years ago.

That said, if you follow these instructions you will accurately receive parts much faster because it will eliminate “back and forth” emails of questions and answers.
The primary contact for ordering parts from Amel is SAV@.... In an emergency you can phone SAV at +33 (0) 546 55 00 75.
1. The email for parts must be clear and concise. Do not use phrases like, “I think I want to order.”
2. Use an opening phrase like: “Request for Quote and Availability for the following parts.”
3. List the parts with the best clear and concise description
4. If possible, or if you cannot correctly describe the part, include a photograph of the part(s)
5. Include your year model and hull#. Example: (2003 - Super Maramu 2000 – Hull #387)
6. Include your complete physical shipping address and phone number (no post office boxes, or postal general delivery because it will be shipped FedEx or similar)
7. Do not specify a shipper. Amel will choose the shipper.
8. When you confirm the Request For Parts (RFQ), include complete credit card information.

Does anyone know where to get the salt water circulating pump for the a/c system in the US, or do I have to go thru Amel? 

I hope to replace the original with the new pump, and use the original as a backup.

Also, I am replacing my burket fresh water valves (for the head water flow). I was told the new replacement # was 221602. I know other owners have replaced their valves. Is this the number part you used? 

There was also a rebuild kit. Anyone have the kit #, and the company offering it for sale?

Again, I'll replace the originals (both have issues) with the replacements, and rebuild the originals and keep them as spares.

Thanks in Advance.

Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] a/c pump replacement

Mark Erdos
 

Jeff,

 

We replaced the expensive Italian Calpeda pump installed by Amel with this: https://www.coastalclimatecontrol.com/index.php/product-catalog/product/260-march-1500-gph-115-230v.html. It works much better than the Calpeda (very old technology and expensive parts - also not suitable to ground to the bonding system). The March pump doesn't need to connect the housing to the bonding system since it is plastic where seawater touches (you will need to connect to the ground). You can probably get the pump cheaper if you shop other than coastal climate: http://www.ebay.com/itm/March-pump-TE-5-5C-MD-1-Phase-115-230V-TEFC-/362037495516?hash=item544b1dc6dc

 

If you wish to purchase the Calpeda pump, Coastal Climate is the USA dealer: https://www.coastalclimatecontrol.com/index.php/water-pumps.html  They are the people who recommended the March pump to me and it has worked well for 3+ years. It was an easy swap as the foot print and hoses are similar. You need to jump the wiring to make it 220v (instructions are included – very easy to do)

 

 

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

I'm not sure what you could do on the liquid side.  Once the transmission oil is sucked out by the seawater flowing through the (perforated) cooler, friction quickly builds up heat in the transmission but there won't be any liquid in the lines to the cooler.  You would have to put a sensor on or in the transmission case.


Replacing the cooler every 2,000 engine hours might do it (as suggested), limiting the time the cooler has to corrode.  Checking on the bonding wire occasionally would also be a good idea, I believe that was the problem with my boat.  The failure happened within the first 10 engine hours of my ownership.

I just wanted to note that sensors on the seawater lines were not going to protect the transmission.
