Does anyone have a drip less shaft seal setup. How often should it be serviced . To get at mine I might have to take generator out :(

We switched to dripless shafts a few years ago and the husband is very happy with them. Can't comment of servicing....not my area of responsibility aboard the vessel.

I will be removing diesel genset to get at my shaft seals . it is apparently a safety issue not to be able to get at the seals so if i cant relocate it i might sell it and go with a honda 2000 . it would be all i would need.
