Re: Stuffing box with grease?
I have had a grease gun hooked to my stuffingbox since the 80's, no problem. Friends have had it even longer. No problem. The thread on the end of the grease hose is a
1/8th inch pipe thread. So you can hook several hoses together with 1/8th inch standard pipe couplings.
The environmental impact is probably less in a year than in starting up an outboard.
