Slipped Shaft and Compressed PSS shaft seal

5 Apr

Seen recently on a 35ft sailboat. The shaft has slipped aft or has been incorrectly re-installed. The net result is that the PSS was under more compression than it was designed for with no give left for the bellows. The result is a leaking shaft seal and possible damage to the bellows.
