Flexible couple for 54 bow thruster
I am making sure that I have everything I need for a Bow-thruster drop and seal change. The only item yet to get is a spare sacrificial coupling. I have tried to work out the part number but it looks like Amel bought the SE155 and then adapted it to a retractable unit. If that is the case then part number 71463 from Sleipner should be correct.
Can anyone confirm?

You are correct. I've had to replace mine.
Your part number is for the 1 piece coupling and that should work perfectly. Are you buying it as a spare or pro-actively replacing it?

Thanks for the confirmation re coupling.
I am buying it to have for my planned November project to drop the BT and replace the seals, as it appears likely that the old will break in that process. I guess, seeing as it is a coupling designed to sheer, I should order two….
Re 8mm thick lip seal. That will fit I am pretty sure.
Re the high pressure hose. If it is not leaking badly, I would wrap a rag around it until you get back to somewhere with a hydraulic shop. In theory those fittings can be reused but ……if you can not get it to seal then you could have a big mess in the engine room.
