When I bought my boat it came with a dripless shaft log. The log had been installed roughly 15 years ago when the engine was changed from a Buhk to a Yanmar. What makes this shaftlog unusual is that it has a remotely mounted small reservoir that has lubricating oil in it and which is piped to a fitting on the shaft log. I have not been able to find any literature on a dripless shaft log that is rigged with a lubricant tank.

The boat did not come with any literature on the shaft log so I have no clue as to who made it and what I need to do to keep it alive and well. I When I bought the boat there was hypoid oil in the engine compartment, which I have been using to refill the reservoir when I notice it is down a bit. Last time I topped off the reservoir I noticed that there was water in the oil and of course that concerns me as well.

Anybody familiar with this system.

Jeff

Yo, Yo, Dudes.....You mean to tell me that with all the useless trivia that I dish out to you guys on a regular basis, no one, and I mean no one is going to impart even the slightest hint of wisdom or other modicum of tripe on this topic? Cheeeez Louise.

See if I answer when you ask me a question...Or for that matter, I will really get revenge and answer any question you ask.....

Thanks folks! Who knew there was a special "Exxon Stern Tube Lube"?

While none of the equipment looks exactly like mine, I was amazed that there were so many devices out there.

Regards,
Jeff
