Re: Hot stuffing box...

Med, there is something strange with that stuffing box for sure. Can't you call the people back to re-do it or explain what they did exactly? Ideally, you'd want to take the thing apart and get to the bottom of this. It just doesn't make sense that it uses 12 rings of packing. Hopefully it's something as simple as removing most of the extra rings of stuffing to get to the normal 3 rings. A photo would help...
