Was thinking the same thing 150 will take forever to "polish" back up.. I actually pre-polish the stainless rotors before install.
C. Dripping at rest:
If the PSS seal drips while at rest then it is likely that foreign material is on the face of the seal between the stainless steel
rotor and the carbon flange.To clean this foreign material from the seal,insert a clean rag
carefully between the two faces (Note:some water
will come into the boat at this time if the boat is in the water)and work the rag around the seal.As you do this,the incoming water
will flush the impurities.Remove the rag from the seal and the leak should stop.
