Clarification please. If the stuffing box is dripping, the drip would be coming from around the nut and thread area, or are you referring to the clamps and the actual "box" area? Mine appears to drip a little too, but higher up on the shaft by the nut and thread, I think. Don't quote me on that. I can take a Mustang engine apart and put it back together, but all this extra sea water engine stuff is new to me.
