Re: Hot stuffing box...

My new flax took many adjustments by an unexperienced sailor, myself. Drips while stopped , and temperature while running, are important. Drips while running, is less of a concern until it has worn in.
Start to loosen the cap to get the first two right.
Try to turn the shaft by hand, before using the engine.
