this bracket springs up, the other doesnt...need to look at that...my 15hp johnson weighs a nice 80lbs or so...need all the springs I can get...will also be fiddling with the davits and maybe add a crossmember to add a pully system to retrieve the outboard or at least pull it up, quickly
oh whats left of my engine compartment...and the leaky stuffing box!
it was around 1 drop every 3 seconds now, but I pulled the shaft as inwards as allowable and it stopped almost completely
ps. did the cup measurement thing for 2 hours befiore and got a half cup, then pulled the shaft in and after around 4 hours I only had a 1/4 cup at the most....so I guess its "better"
edit. so my current leak shoukd be around 1.5 cups a day...x7 days is around 10 cups a week so thats MUCH better than before....
