Re: Replacing stuffing box flax with GFO - sizing?
Thanks Caleb. I'll pick up a pack of 3/16 as well, just to be on the safe side.
I haven't found the gortex packing (GFO) that I want, but I did find this:
"Western Pacific PTFE Packing
Two foot length. PTFE Flax Packing is braided from strong rovings and impregnated with PTFE. This combination offers higher performance and longer packing life. PTFE impregnated flax packing ensures a drip-free stuffing box and leak-free propeller shaft."
Has anyone used this stuff? I'm guessing it's not the gortex packing I'm looking for, but is it any good?
