Experience with Dripless Shaft Seals

when i rebuilt Kimberlite i replaced the stuffing box with a traditional beauty made by spartan. the adjusting nuts are scalloped and made to be adjusted with a big screwdriver and a hammer. works like a charm.
I then installed drip free packing from west marine and have had no drips and no problems for over 10,000 ocean miles.
