Re: Stuffing box & grease fittings

Copa,

I covet your setup. I have to use a standard grease gun, standing on my head of course. It is interesting that the grease in your system exits forward of the compression ring (I am glad you didn't have a chance to clean it up before you took the pictures). Makes me think the forward (second) grease fitting on my setup is redundant and maybe not necessary. Can you give me a little more information on your rationale for using a standard grease instead of a waterproof grease? Is this consistent to what you have seen others use with similar setups? This sounds counterintuitive, but the more I think about it the more sense it makes. Very interesting.
