Pss Seal back to packing gland

After trying for 8 years with a PSS Dripless seal we are now reverting to our old Stuffing box.
The reason is twofold

One is we couldn't move the shaft back enough to change a gearbox oil seal so we had to haul to do this. Very limited shaft movement.

Second one is we have a long shaft and our shaft has a brake on it that is like a fly wheel and caused the shaft to knock on the old stern tube at certain rpm.
Lovely idea but not for us i'm afraid.
Anyone need one LOL
Steve .. It was the last one that did this !
