Uj

Iain,

The U/j is a hardy spicer. These joint repair kits are available from any bearing dealer. The best way is to take the joint in to a auto repair shop ie. the workshop that would rebore your engine etc, and let them do it. They will be able to supply the parts and fit them for about 2 hours labour.

Its possible to do it yourself, but it is a bit troublesome sometimes. They need to get knocked out, then pressed back together. Easier to let the shop do it.

I might have a service exchange one if you need one. Send me a PM.
I suppose you could possibly change the uj with the boat in the water, if you removed the intermediate bearing housing (4 bolts) that should give you access. You would then pull the UJ from the inside, and leave the bellows on. But your bellows maybe full of water - I suppose you would find out soon enough!

The wagner steering realistically isnt much different from any other system, just alot more expensive. Lots of other companies make them, and even the same flow rate so you will still get the same lock to lock . Try Vetus etc.

Good luck!

Can you or anyone tell me how many turns hard over to hard over the standar P22 is, and do you think that this is about right, anyone like to change it?

Do you have anymore info on the people who had the seats Des, don't know them not my part of the world!

http://www.woods-group.co.uk/ Are the people who had the seats, on steering I think it is somthing like 1 1/2 turns each way, I'll check when on the boat next. Des

Managed to damage an electrical component in the console whilst 'fiddling' today and therefore i need to trace the makers.

Its a black box (approx 3"x3") which holds two large fuses which are bolted to a Lucas Marine surpression unit which is to the right of the main fuse box in the console.

The casing says C.A.V. england on it but i cant pull anything up on a web search.

Anyone got any ideas?

Whilst on this subject, what does the surpression unit actually do?

Pete7, what year is your boat? Was looking at your wiring photos earlier and the actual surpression unit looks bigger than mine and is green rather than rusty! The wiring format looks different too. Did the builders vary parts such as these or is it a replacement?

Cheers

Des, haven't a clue what the supression unit does and had real fun wiring mine back up correctly. Mine is greeen because I painted it by the way. It does have a fuse but only one and about 30 amps from memory. Boat is 1981 but who knows what the RN or halmatic have done during the various refits these boats have had.

Might be worth finding your local car electrician and getting him to have a look, can't be rocket science its only a charging circuit,

pete

I think the suppression unit is to stop radio interference, the RN always go over the top with this type of thing and I suspect that you could do without it and not notice the difference. Diesels are not noisy from a radio interference point of view when compared to a petrol engine which has HT leads, distributor etc that make lots of RF noise.

CAV are part of Lucas who have a marine division.

Try http://www.fuses.co.uk/acatalog/GEPOWER74.html for the fuses.

One quick check is to take out one of the Allan headed screws in the side plate (just above the water line on a calm day)and see what comes out if it is grey oil either your boot has gone or the bottom prop. seal, either way boat out quick and drain and flush the leg before more damage occurs. Des

Sorry, but my outdrive is totaly submersed, so there is no way i can get the plug out to have a look, my trailer is now on the drive, new axels being fitted today, so i will drag the boat out next week.

Hi Neville
I realy belive it is only the bearings in the inner caseing have gone, there isn't any water comming through the bearings, so i think the bellows are ok, i have repaired many Volvo " U J 's " so these should not be a problem.
It's just i have never had any experience of these outdrives and have very little information on them.

6009
6011 - 63
but NC 53220 they cannot find any referance to, is this a special/ main dealer only part ?????????.

Bet it was a nightmare rewiring the unit - luckily mine 'appears' to be ok! We'll see when i get an engine though!

Was just curious about the differnce in your wiring units, maybe an earlier or later model, who knows?!

Des

Luckily its not the surpression unit that ive actually damaged which, although you say may not be necessary on the boat, id prefer to keep as its suppost to be there! It looks expensive too!

Was merely wondering what its function was....

Anyway, the fuse box i did damage is a manufacturer add on to the unit i think so will try lucas. Doesnt look to pricey!

Cheers
