Eric,

When all else fails.. GET A BIGGER HAMMER!

The only thing I missed was the Molycote! Surprising, considering how much I love and use that stuff.

I am going to try using Western Pacific Trading's dripless packing. I have always had great success with that in prop shaft applications. I expect that 2 rings of standard packing with about 8mm of dripless packing in between will be a pretty good, and nearly permanent, solution.
