    Dripless Shaft Seals-gctid804065

    I was enjoying some quality time in my bilge this weekend and noticed that if I pushed on the bellows of my PSS seals near the stainless rotor, water would come in. This is my first experience with these seals. Should they be so loose that a relatively easy nudge would allow water to enter? Perhaps the bellows are not compressed enough? Can this be adjusted while in the water? Any experienced advise is appreciated.

    They can be adjusted, go online and find the manf. instructions, too tight and they seize up, too loose they leak.

      Mine have 2 setscrews that hold the steel bushing against the carbon seal amd the bellows. Once loose, the bushing can be adjusted against the bellows. Have a hammer handle or something non metallic to put pressure on the bushing as it is hard to move. Mine also had 2 additional setscrews on top of the first setscrews
