R34 Stern Gland

Packing Size
Posted: 2 Mar 2017 - By: Jeremy Lenton

I have a 1973 R34S with a 1" non-metric shaft size.

I want to replace the stern gland packing after a period ashore/dry.  At almost 70 and after arthritis joint replacements, access is not exactly easy!  I am hoping to have the correct material at hand so that removal and replacement can be one operation.

Can anyone advise what size packing I need - i.e. 1/4";  5/16" or 3/8"?
