How many turns of the greaser?
QAI have always, out of habit, given the stern tube greaser five half turns. Is this too much? Is there a rule?

TONY REPLIES… There is no rule: grease used depends upon temperature, wear in the shaft, bearings and gland, and how long you have been running. I turn mine down until it stiffens and then a couple more turns unless it virtually stops before that. It could be anything between three and ten or more turns. New shafts and bearings are costly, so don’t skimp on grease.
