          Per Sylvan Tieger;


          1- Pack in the oakum as normal

          2- place the joint runner over the hub

          3- pour in some oil and allow some to escape from the bottom of the
          runner (asbestos rope)

          4- Slowly pour in the molten lead and as you hear the HISSING from the lead
          coming out of the bottom of the runner push the runner closer to the hub
          to stop the lead from leaking out of the bottom still pouring until you
          see the entire runner filled to capacity

          5- Wait a few minutes remove the runner and feel around and you should have
          a perfect joint

          WEAR long sleeves and safety goggles etc

          NOTE the Entire hub cannot be under water just about 80%

              Granted, Sylvan's not everyone's cup of tea.

                That is the method indeed, but what they don't tell you is how to set the damn thing after you have it poured. Most times you can't get an iron on the bottom side and if you do, every time you give it a wack with the hammer it sprays water and muck all over the place. God I miss the old days.

                  I think if I ran into this situation, I would either dig a hole around it and bail out the water or wait for sun. When lead hits water that flashes to steam, you're likely to get the lead right back in your face.

                              And if the hissing gets a little too loud hope that your running faster than the lead comoing at your face .
