Re: Send packing the stuffing gland..
Well after It has come off twice. Ideal isn't a word I'd use to describe it right now!
I checked the clamps which are doubled up 3 months ago. Engine mounts are new so that cant move a lot. Dunno yet I will try to investigate more now I am in the yard.
One point I would make is that when I researched using Teflon braid in the stuffing box. The instructions specifically say NOT to use grease as a lubricant.
So maybe you might want to check that out with your supplier as well.
