Re: Rudder Stuffing Box Packing Material

I wonder if you might have had a deteriorated old style flax packing in your stuffing box? That material will break down and become weak over time so does tend to break into pcs. If you use a modern fiber packing I think that you will find that the packing rings will come out in one pc. as it is quite strong. I am glad to hear that the specialty tool worked better for you.
