PTFE (5mm x6) packing for kit 13

Post  Brian M on Sun 29 Jan 2012, 11:41 am

Hi All,

For kit 13, STW sent some extra thick PTFE (5mm x6) packing (not part of the original kit delivery). Was it to replace the original packing for HP/LP glands on the cylinder block?

Appreciate any help!

Thanks,

Brian M

Hey Brian, Now this one I can cope with it is for the piston rods on both cylinders. If you look in the gland the small stuff is far too small and this fills the gap nicely.

Cheers Kev.

Cheers Kev,

I take it it is two per stuffing port?

All the best,

Brian

Yes, the easiest way I found was to use a new stanley blade wrap it round the con rod and slice it so you get a nice clean circle just the right diameter, then poke it in with a screwdriver and use the gland to push it home. Makes the pistons impossible to move especially if you have the rings on as well. Never wears out though. cheers
