36 Stuffing Box Details

Packing behind Nut?
Posted: 22 Feb 2012 - By: Robert (& Margo Louwerse) Cohn
Having Nomad on the hard we removed the stuffing box gland nut to find a 1"long collar with a raised lip on the end
I have the engineering drawing that shows a retaining piece, the nut presses against the packing material.
It appears my stuffing box only has the grease as a stopping for the water?
