Re: Cheoy Lee Perry 35 Stern Tube Housing

That’s different than my setup. I’m not able to offer any magic tips or solutions as it’s quite unfamiliar to me. Perhaps a previous owner changed it for me! I only have one cutlass bearing at the aft end of the shaft. I was able to mount my PSS on the old stuffing box.

Re: Cheoy Lee Perry 35 Stern Tube Housing

PSS:
The PSS sounds Great!
Did you like one brand over another???
Any modifications to make to make her work???

Aligning the shaft:
I have NOT had to reinstall the shaft yet - you got me a little scared
So I have to jack up the engine to align the shaft????


Jacking up the engine:
Suggestion:
What about two 4x4s across the floor straddling a car floor jack with a space between
Tie a tow strap under the engine and thread up to the middle of the two 4x4s jack up on the support of the interior floor
It should hold ok
Thoughts?

Re: Cheoy Lee Perry 35 Stern Tube Housing

Did you have to hook up a water supply to your PSS bearing conversion?
If so where did you get the water supply?

If not --
did you cap it? Or do they come without the water port??

You don’t have to jack up the engine to align it. I had to jack up mine to replace the shaft as it would only fit when installed from the inside to the outside.
I looked at several types of dripless and went with PSS as it was more easily obtained locally than some others, and I could get one that fit my situation.

Re: Cheoy Lee Perry 35 Stern Tube Housing

So you kept your old stuffing box and pushed the PSS right up to it?
That's sounds easy
I might even be able to do that

Thanx a bunch for the info!!!!

Yup. The PSS fit over the threaded portion of the old stuffing box. Pretty straightforward. I’m happy I could help!

There is no need for a water supply on slow sailboats like ours. It does have a vent hose IIRC. I found the folks at PYI to be very helpful if you have a setup thatís not covered in the manual.

Re: Cheoy Lee Perry 35 Stern Tube Housing

Does anybody know if GFlex epoxy is appropriate to rebuild this epoxy shim behind stern tube housing?
