Packing update:
I have only run my 3-3/16" packing rings for about an hour, but there is no dripping and the box is cool to to the touch (Grab around with the whole hand).  Guess I will just continue to run this way and monitor.  I wonder if they changed the size of the stuffing box or just went from 3-3/16" to 2-1/4" packing.  Love the dry bilge.
