Hi! I am planning to disassemble my rudder to replace the bearings. Do you have any advice? I have the tiller version and there are a number of bolts. In which order shall they be untighten? I only got a few minutes while the boat is hanging in the crane…
Yesterday, i received the seal of the Lewmar desk panel. The front one leaks with salt water to the bed.
First the size is 44.
Next i've passed a long long time to understand how to do, despite the copied paper delivered with the very expansive seal !
I give you these informations.
Dismount the arm with the brake throught the glass. After, it's not necessary to unscrew the hinges to the bottom frame I've done it stupidly in the picture.
Just pull the grey cap in the hinge. Under, there is a black cutted pipe that maintain le two parts of the axis in the up of the panel hinge.
Look at the picture. then try to pull to the center of this axis, the two plungers black and metal in the picture.
Have a look to this part. The axis is not round but like a bone. Use lot of lube, a pin to pulllaterally but it's hard to slide.
The picture in the paper is not good. It seems to twist this piece, but it's a mistake and impossible.
Ok. Now the top of the panel is in your hands and easy to dismount ( in a quiet and smooth place) the 4 screws and pull the half frames to pull away the seal. Put the new one respecting the old mount after a water cleaning. Pull it equally in each side and put the welding glued close to an hinge to the back. Use silicon lube to place the new one. Be careful with the seal lips when sliding at the end. Use a special grease anti corrosion for aluminium and inox to screw again the two halt top frames.
Hello to everybody.
I'm trying again to obtain pictures and ideas about Eberspacher and Webasto heather installations. I've my Eby D4 still in the box....
There is now the good season, here in Cote d'Azur Cannes, to work in the boat not so hot, not yet cold..
I'm sorry for you that are preparing winterization, but here we sail all along the year and winter is a very good season without mechanic swell... Please send here all the pictures about heather.
