Hi guys, Quick introduction!! Im Craig an i live in the uk, Recently bought an early 80s procomp and am loving every moment of it!! Shes an old girl but does the job!

Righthere we go,

I hate to say this but after speaking 2 m/cuk this morning they dont seem interested in speaking to me as im not after buying a 60000 boat off them!

Anyway

Its leaking water through the prop gland and im sure it will need new packing, after having to find somewhere else to get the packing from i was met with the problem of what size to get.

Can any1 please give me an idea for the 1" shaft packing??

My options are

3 mm
5
6
8
10
12.5

From bayliner

Thanks in advance Guys
Ill now have a good look round this site which i feel will be very informative while i own this old girl!

Regards
Craig

A 1" drive shaft takes 1/4" packing, which is 6.35 mm. The 6 mm ought to do the trick.

Here's a rundown on the procedure (http://mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showpost.php?p=159060&postcount=31). Good luck. Sorry your dealer isn't more supportive.

You can get the rope packing from here if you need some, but shipping may be $$$, http://www.skidim.com/products.asp?dept=1118&pagenumber=2&sort_on=&sort_by=
or from one of the MasterCraft UK dealers here, http://www.mastercraft.co.uk/dealers
