If the packing is supplied in multiple pieces, start with a few, use the follower and the packing nut to compress it into the cavity, then take the follower and nut back off, add another ring, repeat. If not, could you carefully cut the packing into smaller pieces to proceed in the same fashion? "smash"ing is not usually recommended...........
