Re: Stuffing Box Stopped Dripping
Mine is easy to get to, even while the boat is running. Mine drips very little and like others have said, some times really leaks very little or seems to stop.
In that condition I have put my hand (carefully - but it is very safe and handy) on the stuffing box and it is slightly warm, not a problem at all.
