Hi, could somebody tell me what size gland packing and how much I need for a Lister H2 pump.
Thanks, Bernard.

I think it might depend on whether it is the water pump or the high pressure spray pump version of the H2?  The spray pump has a smaller diameter plunger, usually made from stainless steel, so I think it might need wider gland packing?   If so, let us know what type of H2 pump you have (a good quality photo should help).

Hi the Lister pump is a water pump.
Thanks, Bernard.

I've just been out to the shed to measure the off-cut of gland packing left over from mine, but my H2 is the spray pump version... so that's not much help, as I don't know if the water pump is the same or not!    scratch

I would have thought the packing is the same size as the face that goes into the gap on the plate that holds the packing in...

Get my drift??
