Alright, first off, Merry Christmas
and or a Happy Holidays everyone. If you don't celebrate at all, well, have a great day anyway.
I need help again!
has a Norscot shaft seal
, and it has developed the habit of leaking water
into my bilge
, but only when underway. It doesn't leak a drop when sitting at the dock
, only when motoring. It has continued to increase the amount of water
and I need to deal with it now.
I've searched for, and read everything I can about seals
and understand that this is a lip seal. I can't find anything published (so far) that tells me; 1) why it's failing this way. 2) what the fix is.
Can anyone help me out here?
And it's kinda like, "can I keep doing it until I need glasses" kinda thing.
Or am I looking at the possibility of catastrophic failure?
