genoa furler cover MEJ1 removal


 

Maybe this helps...it is a page from my Amel Book. You did not state your hull number, but if it is an early 54 the cover is sealed with sealant and it may be a little difficult to remove:

Maybe you could take this opportunity to install grease ports

Hi all Amel owners.  i am struggling to remove the cover of the MEJ1 furler,  to be able to replace te belt.
i have tried a rubber hammer, i do not like to use a srewdriver as this would damage the anodising of the cover and sealbed.
Is the cover flat ? or has the furlerbody recesses for the screws?  in other words does it have to come out vertically, or should i use more force with the hammer sideways?  advice welcome.
