Re: Stuffing box problems

I'll be interested to hear what you find. As I think about it, I think it's more likely that the PO didn't put enough rings on the shaft which is why you could have over tightened it to metal on metal.

Blaster, like @rbrasi said, will get at corrosion seizing, but I don't think that's what's going on since you've worked it fairly recently.
