Replacing stuffing box/gland R36

Replacing stuffing box/gland R36
Posted: 4 Jan 2010 - By: Robert (& Margo Louwerse) Cohn
We are considering replacing our R36 stuffing box with a PSS dripless seal. Access to the current gland is so restricted, I have not been able adjust or remove to repack. I do not want to resort to the hammer and chisel, using the auto-grease device and pumping it at the begining and end of every sail, seems to work in slowing or stopping the drips. Can anyone help with suggestions to 1 removing the packing gland nut? or experience with removing the whole assembly and replacement with a dripless device?
