Got my shaft out today, nice and easy, everything looks good.
Which since it has been sitting there for 40 + years makes me smile.
Now im wondering about the stuffing box stuffing, its been hiding in its little spot for the same amount of time, its never been used mind you apart from just sitting there in the stuffing box, shaft nor motor
has only ever been spun for about 2-3 minutes in the last 40 + years, and that was just recently.
Should i change the stuffing box stuffing? or should it still be fine?
Its not a cost consideration that i'm worried about its more so about unnecessary waste, plus i still have some of the old stuff hiding here somewhere too.
Any comments from the others on the other side of cyberspace.
Should i be stuffed and re-stuff or should in not give a stuff and leave stuff?
