    Carbon seal question

    I changed my carbon seal, and the S/S bushing and shaft seals and boot. To test it I ran the garden hose into the shaft bellows under the ski and I get little water pushing past the carbon seal. If I run the ski it throws a steady drip from around the carbon seal. Is the garden hose too much water pressure or did do something wrong? Thanks Rick

    The real way to test it is to put it in the water and give it a quick ride and see if it still leaks....If it does still leak then it Sounds like you may need a new accordian boot also

    Sorry I changed the boot as well, the new boot was about 1/8 of a inch longer than the old one. The lake is about 30 miles away and its still a little cold. I was hoped using the hose would be a quick check for any major problems, but now I a worried because I didn't use the hose on the old seal to see it it seeped as well. Thanks Rick
