First off I have not replaced a JH rope seal but I have changed rope seals on hundreds of pumps agitators and othe rotating devices, two important things to keep in mind, they need lubrication, oil with ZDDP should do the trick, and cutting the ends at a 45 degree so they overlap, butt joints tend to leak faster.

Hope it helps.
