Max prop and stuffing box

The engine back in and we are nearly ready to go back in the water. The stern gland needs repacking. The propeller needs greasing and the anodes fitting

Picking the gland packing out of the stuffing box using an engineer's scribe

Here is the packing material picked out. It was in fairly good condition

Prop shaft anode. This model has a copper protrusion to improve electrical contact

These are the grease screws on the Max Prop Classic. You take them out with an Allen wrench to fit the Zerk grease nipple. This grub screw was damaged so I took it out with a screw extractor
