PSS Clamp Collar now available from PYI

Maine Sail mentioned in one of his past posts that PYI would be supplying these in the future. Not sure if this is their final offering, but they did provide me one upon request. Thanks MS

Ha, looks like the one I just purchase from McMaster, but not as nice. I should ask for one and compare.

Cheers,

$28 w/ S&H. Kind of disappointed when I saw it, but I ordered it out of curiosity. You can see the finish is marked up on the faces. The interior dimension was smooth. It wasn't a live part number. The guy I spoke to had to ask to see if they were selling it yet.

I am not sure I understand what this part is and its use. Could any one of you clarify? What part of the PSS system is this used for? Thanks!

It's to hold the drive shaft.... if the coupling were to let go and the shaft tried to back out of the boat, this would keep in from sliding past the stuffing box.

$28.00!!! The one I just purchased from McMaster-Carr (thanks MaineSail) was $25.04 (316 Stainless 1" Bore) plus $4.25 shipping...it's flawless, and I doubt it was made in CHINA?

Sorry, but I would send it back based on that picture.

Cheers,
Shawn

Ha! No, I won't send it back, but I appreciate the sentiment. PYI has been very helpful with our prop and shaft seal. They're a good operation as far as I can tell. The collar seems to fit well, if not cosmetically up to par yet. Figured it was a toss up when I called, but glad to give them the business considering our other experiences with them. Just want to let others know what to expect for now.

I used a $2 hose clamp. No worries.
A $7 shaft zinc works as well...
