The drive shaft seal on the subject motor has a conventional, but very old
seal in it with a steel case, but appeared to have some kind of packing
under it. Not sure what originally was in there, but it looks like
I can replace is with a conventional 1/2" shaft x 1" OD seal.
The prop shaft seal on the other hand is one like I've never seen.
It's a brass hub that sticks out from the gear case cover. It may be
pressed on the end of the bronze bushing in the gear case cap.
It had "plier" marks on it and I gently tried the same with no
luck. I didn't want to destroy it. Only enough room under the seal case
to get a putty knife in, but I had no luck that way.
What ever type sealing material was in the brass case is long gone.
If anyone is familiar with this type of seal,
How does it come off, and what in the world would I use to replace it?
UPDATE, later in the day-
I found a tiny chisel that I was able to use to pry off the brass "packing?" cap.
I think it had some old sealer helping it to stay on, but once I got
it moving it came off easy.
So........ now I know "how" to get it off, but am still at a loss what to do next.
The brass packing cap fits over a raised portion of the gear case cover.
The bore of this raised portion (where the packing would go) is tapered....
I suppose to compress the packing around the shaft as the brass cap is
Anyone know what kind of packing I would use, as well as where to get it,
or have a better fix all together?
