Are you talking about the...

the shaft seal in a traditional stuffing box or is this a saildrive? If a stuffing box, tighten it a bit. As far as grease, I am not aware of any stuffing box packing that should have grease as part of the packing.


If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
