Just joined. Bought a 1986 Newport 30 Mk III last summer.
I still have questions. This question is on the stuffing box. It was dripping too fast, so I tightened it up a bit. Then it stopped dripping so I loosened it a bit. Now it drips about 1 drop per second when the prop is turning, but almost no drops when the shaft is idle.
Is it too tight? I'm still watching it.
I would appreciate your opinions.
