Real Seal stuffing box maintenance

My 31'' Allmand has had the stuffing box
replaced. It was replaced with a
mechanical face seal from Real Seal of
Miami, FL. The company is out of
business. I have the installation
instructions from the previous owner, but I
would like to know if anyone knows what I
should do to maintain it.

Thanks,
Mark

It''s your luck day, no maintainence is required, each season check the double hose clamps at each end of the dripless seal assembly. Now send me $25 for this marine survey advise!

not true. you will need to "burp" the air out of the seal each season after you splash the boat.

Not true if installed correctly like mine was, a hose is permanently attached for the release of trapped air. Burping is only necessary after to many beers in a short period of time!
