And consider a benefit is the metal is then sealed from water, so no more galvanic-crevice corrosion.Reason the shafts corrode is the tight seal I suppose cuts down on oxygen when it sits not spinning. I was thinking it would not be very hard as a DIY. Simply grind enough to get a thin coating of Belzona on. Use a flat edge and drag it around the shaft to conform the epoxy to round. then a little sanding to smooth it. I run the soft GFO packing, it can handle a little non conformity, and being soft wont cut into the Belzona.
