    I think I may stick with my old seal. Don't have to replace it but about every 5 years. Would never add up to a dripless price

    I'll put my 2 cents in here. First, a dry bilge? What is that? If you have a dry bilge, you are playing hard enough!

    As for which shaft seal to use, I think it depends on the boat. For a DD, a standard seal is probably the way to go. For a V-drive, they are harder to get to, so I can understand having a dripless. My original packing still works just fine, and I am at 560 hours, and only tightened it once.

    I just took mine apart and there wasn't a piece of packing left in the nut! I was going to go dripless as well but since I have it apart I ordered the Gortex and going to give that a shot as I am trying to get the boat ready for Memorial weekend and there is no way my mechanic would have it done!

    trial n error....they discovered the problem in 2009 so some 09 have them that way and some do not. As far as i can figure.....just an oopsy

    I checked mine and it was super loose. I tightened a little. I will make my final adjustments on the water tonite when we get to camp.
