Stuffing box leak

I have been getting water in the bilge lately and in looking for the leak found the stuffing box leaking. It drips about 1 drip every two or three seconds while not running. When under way the drip increases a little. The drip is forward of the hose at a brass coupling right behind the transmission. We will pull the boat today to take home on the trailer and I will start to take apart-hopefully. I will appreciate any suggestions regarding the repair. Boat is a Catalina 25 w/Universal diesel inboard engine.
