Lead or Graphite Packing

Recommended Posts

Just disassembled my !030 Chrysler water pump and cleaned the gland nut.

I have NOS lead packing and I have new- fangled graphite industrial packing.

I can get the bees wax teflon, if need be.

The shaft is surprisingly smooth where the packing makes contact.

Whats the best to preserve the shaft from where??

 I'm not worried about a drip every now and then either.

Dont worry.

I used to pack pumps for a living.

Just asking.

These seals resist water, salt water, oil, mild acids, and mild alkalies.

Broad-temperature seals are graphite-impregnated aramid for use in pumps and valves. They require lighter packing pressure than value seal, so they cause less friction for reduced shaft wear.
