Amel Super Maramu 2000
Broken Boom Car Replacement
Pictures of another Amel Super Maramu (BeBe #387) showing a broken car which has the connection broken.
Spare with the modified reinforcement (Main only) on rail.
I put ZEP 45 (Penetrating oil) and let it soak
Under the Boome you will see a 13 mm nut
Will need a wrench and extension with the 13 mm socket
Large screw driver on top
Removed, showing the washer and nut from under the boom
To prevent to loose the balls from the car, I put a rag
Of course, the balls went to the other side
Counted 64 brown and 64 white balls
New car on its extension
Connect the 2
Unscrew the screw to allow the new car to slide
Slide the car
Put back bold
and washer and nuts under the boom
In order to reattach the outhaul lines I attach a cord
and pull with the winch
Then reconnect the main sail
You can see the Rebuilt of the Main Boom Car.
