I posted about my nightmare shaft packing problems 2 weeks ago and how I couldn't get it to drip or run cooly. Link to thread here:

Well today I ripped out that stuff and replaced it with GORE GFO. I was able to get 3 times as many turns on the packing nut before it was hand tight and also I had no problems what so ever adjusting it so I got a nice cool 3-5 drips per minute and no drips while out of gear. Just wanted to leave my review of another happy customer:)
