Re: GFO packing
So how do I know what size packing is required? Do I measure the shaft diameter , measure the inside diameter of the stuffing box, subtract the two, then divide that sum by two? Such as, shaft 1 inch, inside diameter 1.5 inch, difference .5 divided by 2 is 1/4 inch. Is it that simple? I want to make sure I get it right. Also does one cut three lengths and pack or just one long length then wrap around the shaft three times then pack?
