thanks everyone for the advice. the new PSS is in! Of all the work, pulling the rudder, taking all that edson stuff apart then putting it all back in again.. the PSS was the easy part of the work! How water doesn't sling off the seal is a mystery to me. carbon against a SS collar! duh! talk about a low tech answer for a high tech part! Just need to find some new set screws for the shaft hub and things.

no SR, we had to drop the rudder.. it really wasn't all that difficult. the intimidation factor was hard to get past. All I really needed help with was dropping and lifting the rudder itself. I'm glad I got into it.. now I know how the edson steering is set up and how it would be repaired and things. Losing weight helped me get in behind the rudder post but the hull had me rolling in on all the greasy stuff! Now it's back to work on the 2000E preping!

Stillraining,

Locating the zinc to provide room to slide the shaft out is a good idea. It's currently about 4" from the strut I'll make sure to remeber to relocate it.

Thanks for the tip!

Tom

UpDate!

My boat went in yesterday! Finally! New 2000E on the bottom too!

The PSS works fine, doesn't leak! Only.. should I be concerned by the way carbon collar wobbles when under way? we still need to do the final shaft alignment. Other then that, it's fine.
fair winds everyone!

Out of money

Standard packing,
The kind you put the okum or whatever you call it in.

Boat left in the harbor all winter due to no boat bucks...Spring time packing started to realy leak with max tightening on threds....

Dove on outside and duct taped a clear face shield over the top 3/4 of shaft.filled space with air from neighbors compressor and hit the seal with DOW great stuff foam insulation.It expands when you let it out of the can......

This basically stopped the flow...a few drips but.....worked........Replaced the packing and were good to go.

Now realize this is done with 2 kids under 20...
