Shaft Seal

I suck at pictures, but....

New PSS shaft seal running on new shaft

The old stuffing came out as something like greasy sawdust. The old shaft, courtesy of a corroded flange fitting, came out in two pieces with the help of an angle grinder. In went a new shaft, rebuilt prop, and PSS dropless seal. Yay for maintenance, boo for the checkbook.

New cutlass bearing
Old now 2-piece shaft
Popped right off - after a few hours of cussing and beating, a very expensive hour of "professional" cussing and beating, and a half-hour with a grinder.
