Re: Stuffing box adjustment

Old boat tech in Port Townsend showed me how to adjust any stuffing box frozen or not...tap the lock nut a couple blows on the high side of the nut with a 2lb mallet. Turn packing nut by hand to snug...snug lock nut and 2 taps with 16oz hammer.Done...15 seconds once you practice.
