water only leaks from underneath the shaft. there are two bolts each side of that flange that loosen it and tighten it. we took it apart again yesterday and added 4 rings of packing inside, in a couple hours we are going to take it out for an hour to test the heat levels and the drip rate.

I've looked at hundresds of pictures of stuffing boxes and i think that forklift is right it was just made with female threads. anyways ill see if i can get some more pictures today. i kept forgetting the camera and before when i started having an issue we had used electric tape to stop the leak.
