stuffing box

I am about to repack the rudder packing gland. Shaft diameter is 2.25". Anyone hazzard a guess as to the flax width I need? I would guess somewhere from 1/4" to 3/8", but manual is silent and too hard to try to measure until I actually open it up. Would be real convenient to have purchased the packing material before hand...........
Thanks in advance........
