I've never dealt with stuffing boxes, my project
boat has/had a centerboard
with a cable/shaft that pulls thru a stuffing box. The current
stuffing box is seized up really bad, I'd tried my damnest to free it up.
The shaft is 3/4 and the OD of the pipe is 1 1/4" which seems like a hard size to find a stuffing box in.
Can I buy one of these and put a different/correct sized hose on it?
