Re: Stuffing Box Hose Blues
The o.d. of the shaft log is presumably going to be the same as the stuffing box, so you're in for a nightmare back aboard as well. You need the right size hose. You can't stretch an internally reinforced hose. An 1/8" is a lot. I've had nightmares trying to retrofit SAE hoses onto metric fittings that were so close, you could hardly tell.
