Thanks Rick, Downeast we like to have a minimal drip even at engine stop to insure ample lubrication. I just replaced my old flax with some new low friction packing and have the drip rate virtually stopped. Stopping it altogether goes against all the advice I have ever gotten unless you install a dripless stuffing box
