Over greased for sure. With 2 seasons of racing & lots of practice on the same seal, I learned that Phil's product doesn't require packing it "until the grease gun locks up". I can easily go a weekend of racing without touching it. What I have figured out is to hit the zerk with a full pump or so when you put the boat away. That way everything settles and it disperses most of the captured water. Hope it helps.This is after first 20 min run. Is this normal amount of intial goop that comes out? Or did I over grease it............ Only couple drops of water....much better! Thanks for your help......Rob
Thank you very much Jeff. :thumbsupMy prop and rudder seals have been working awesome all summer... no more water in the boat after extended use! I've left the boat in overnight a few times and it's dry the next day. I shoot some grease in there every now and again and that's it. I am really digging this setup. It's one of those things that gets more bitchin' as the time goes on. No more dickin' around with rope seals, a quarter turn here, a cotter pin there... this is the setup!
