P22 sterndrive annodes...

I need to fit two sterndrive annodes to the err... sterndrive of my rather lovely P22 which (I found out last night) very nearly fits on the concrete hard standing I had put in next to the house.

Any ideas where I can get them etc?

Thinking about it Nate, it would be a good idea to fit a couple on the bottom of the rams I fitted two of these with jubilee clips they are 110mm by 49mm codeZZ24 I’d show you a photo but they are in the water at the moment.

I fitted them to the bottom of the ram because with care you can find enough space for them Des

whilst we are on this subject, does anyone know where i can get a better (ie cheaper!!) supplier of the external trim hoses. I have been quoted over £70 each from Lancing. Only need 2. They look similar to mercruiser ends. Thanks

Yes they are too expensive

I ended up getting a local hydraulic firm to cut the metal pipe and end fitting of the old hoses and brazing them on to new hose fittings

They used a nylon outer sheathed stainless steel braded hose which, I understand from them, is commonly available (and the same as Lancing uses for their new ones)

I got the whole set for just over a hundred and fifty.

Nate, the original ones I had looked a little small so after a trip to the chandlers I selected a much larger "doughnut" sized anode for the saddle and a second wedge shaped anode for the anti cavitation plate. I did notice that where the stern drive had previously had a top cover fitted the bolts sit very close to the rams and the stainless steel bolts had caused localised corrosion on the rams. I don't have the top cover fitted anymore.

Des which end of the rams are they fitted? inboard or outboard ?

Pete

Des,

I'll get some photos posted as soon as I manage to park the boat properly!

Problem I've got is that there's no annodes fitted at present (leg was serviced and painted by previous owner) so I need some idea of part numbers sizes etc. I'll certainly fit some to the rams as I've seen what electolysis can do to one...

Thanks for the zincsmart website!

Pete
Outboard underneath and touching on the ram body and the end cap where the hoses go in, my thinking being that this will earth out both parts of the ram

Not sure how well they are working because the boat has been in the water since I fitted them.

Interestingly the anode on the anti cav. plate doesn’t seem to erode Des

I doesn’t matter too much what anodes you fit as long as you fit some.

On my boat there is an anode fitted to the top right-hand side of the anti cavitation plate and one on the yoke (See pic) you might find the original holes which were threaded in these places but if it is anything like my one the thread are gone and re tapping was the order of the day Des
