Sorry for being glib Kenn. I was thinking the PO had one to many one day and had an idea. I wouldn't worry about your stuffing box if you know the packing is OK. The grease is not a substitute for packing. But I don't see the grease hurting anything. If a stuffing box doesn't run hot then no problem.
