Re: My Manual Bilge Pump is Useless
Eherlihy -I purchased Dow 795 from my local glass shop.
FirstCandC - perhaps you can make a gasket for the bilge pump and remove it when access to the stuffing box is required? Not sure about the mounting screws though - they may be relying on the sealant. A transition plate could resolve this. Check out your options when you remove it to rebuild it. It may turn out it does not help that much with access.
