[Amel Yacht Owners] How to replace the “eye” of the chain counter?


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good afternoon,

I am having a little unknown…
Could you please explain to me how to change the eye of the chain counter?
Is there a trick?
I see some silicone on mine…

If you could please look at the (7) pictures:
http://nikimat.com/lofrans_tigres_windlass_chain_counter_eye.html
Thanks in advance!

Good afternoon Bill,

Thanks again for the information.
I just finished to reinstall the windlass, with the new eye, and it works !!!
First time, in almost 4 years that I own the boat, that the chain counter is working !!!
Thanks again, hope you have a great weekend !

Sincerely, Alexandre
