Re: Dripless Shaft Seal versus Stuffing Box

Maine Sail...I tried "Like" your post several times but couldn't We have had a PSS Dripless for several years with no problems.

Some keys points MS and others have outlines for a proper install:
- use a shaft collar either from PSS or McMaster Carr
- only use your set screws once
- only use locktite on the second set screw, not the first
- follow the maintenance intervals
- read the install directions well
