I was replacing my rope in my seal and removed the cotter pin, nut, plastic washer and 1 rope. When I look inside it looks like there is a metal washer and another rope behind it. Do I need to remove that metal washer? I thought 2 ropes would have just been installed 180 degrees off from the cut. Does anyone have one of these that can show me how it goes inside? Thanks for the help.

I have no idea how those work and would of thought by now somebody here that does know would jump in to help you.

If worse comes to worse and you want to give another product a try without too much maintenance hassle's I'm using this shaft seal kit on my new project ground up build machined out of 6061-T6 that has 3 in-line double lip cup seals inside the housing with a grease zerk, stainless T-bolt clamps w/ nylocks to tighten down on the marine rubber hose. The T-Bolts are stronger and you could eliminate using your 4 standard hose clamps and use grease to keep the seal water tight. Just a thought.

Hey Mike,

When are you and Shelly coming by for a drink?
The Schiada project has made it to the top of the list and I'm gathering parts and tearing it apart as we speak.
