Shaft Gland Repacking

Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 Sunsetter LXI with 325 Monsoon and am hoping to find out a few specs and recommendations for the shaft gland system.   What diameter is the shaft?  What size packing should go with it?   Any recommendation on the packing material?     Finally, what size of shaft packing wrench would be needed?   (I am away from the boat now so can't measure directly.)    Many thanks

1-1/8" shaft.  3/16" packing.  Any packing material will work fine or get gore-tex.  You could just tighten the nut a tad - you DO want it to drip a little.   I just use adjustable wrenches.
