Another option, that I like, is a stuffing box with a greaser. This is what we have on RAVEN. Every so often, I just push a little grease into the stuffing box. Doesn't seem to need adjusting much, and if it drips too much, you can just put in a little more grease to stop the leak until you get time to tighten it up. The one I installed is made by Volvo.
