Re: packing flax first time

I don't know the size of packing you should use with a 7/8" shaft.
I'd get a couple of sizes: 1/8", 3/16", 1/4" say, and hope you are covered.
Read this link if you have never re-packed a stuffing box before: Re-Packing A Traditional Stuffing Box Photo Gallery by Compass Marine at pbase.com
He makes a recommendation as to the type of packing material you should use.
