Re: Stuffing box question

But a traditional stuffing box does not usually have a grease fitting attached to it.
This pops up from time to time as there are a few packing glands set up with a grease fitting. I'd guess it is a slightly older/different style (as if packing gland technology weren't already ~ 100 years old).
Keep refilling the grease cap.
