I pulled my stuffing box out, it’s in the garage at home. I will try to check for you tonight and let you now.
Anybody know what size material to get for the standard original J28 stuffing box? It's on my list of todo"s next week before launching and would by nice to have it with me when I head north. I suspect it's 3/16th but not sure. Thanks.
