Amel also did mine.
They used my spare packing nut with release on it and laid up the extension. It is a bit longer than 2 pieces of packing.
It is the same diameter as the original stuffing box. They epoxied this assembly to my existing stuffing box.
They also added a few long screws. Works great and there in no problem with the clearance with the ruder quadrant.

Extending the shaft tube was going to be my next step if the Dripless packing didn’t work. My plan was to cast an extension in place using JB Weld, or something similar.
