See pic below.
My shaft is a wet tube design (correct me if wrong) from the 1970's and drips slowly, which is normal in my understanding.
At speed it flings water around and has caused considerable corrosion over 6 years since repower.
I have a new racor housing I'm putting in (the other side is badly corroded), but how do I protect the gear? You can see it's taken quite a hit.
Also I've zip tied plastic around the shaft, and that's helped, but is this just a half-assed fix, and is there a better way? I can't afford extensive work (dripless shaft) without giving up other dreams (radar).
