Dripless Shaft Seal?

Can anyone recognize if this is a dripless? It is leaking pretty bad.

Thanks!

Does it have a waterline running to it? If it does, it is dripless.

It is a dripless. OJ props makes it and can get you a seal. Call em up for replacement. Not sure if the versions with the hose last longer, maybe they'll suggest you add one.

Before you replace the shaft seal, check your prop shaft or excessive wear.
My shaft had to be replaced there was a uneven Groove where the seal rides on.

Not correct. The early version of the OJ drippess did not have a water line going to it. The water was added because the seal would overheat if the boat had poor shaft alingment. If you had correct alingement it would work just fine. My 06 had one without a water line.

Pretty sure you nailed it! The dripless also has a lot of wear and needs replaced.

Thanks, everyone!!
