[Amel Yacht Owners] Lofrans anchor winch and Genset
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Windlass-You remove the fill cap and use a hand pump to remove the old oil.
The oil is SAE 90-140, .5 liters as per the attached link.
This is the link for all the details of the windlass.
Generator-You might have a clogged exhaust elbow that builds back pressure after running or a bit
I just took the exhaust elbow off of my genset just 2 weeks ago.. I had to cut the heads off of 2 of the cap screws to be able to heat the stud to remove the remainder of the cap screws.
When I remove it, the manifold was clogged with very hard carbon and the gasket flange area was eroded.
I sent the manifold out to a machine shop and had it milled down to a nice shiny gasket flange and the also milled the carbon out. I only have about 1400 hours on the genset. It is much better now.
