T34c Centerboard Stuffing Box

I recently purchased a T34c and have her in the yard right now. The inspection port for the centerboard hub is open. The stuffing box does not leak, and the board goes all the way up, although the cables need to be tightened a bit. The area has been opened before and the last owner said that the stuffing box did leak a bit on him a year ago or so, but he tightened it 1/2 a turn and it stopped. Should I replace the packing material now? Does one have to remove the control lever to get to the packing material? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
