    Default Gland Packing nut

    I am farily mechanical, however I am a little green when it comes to the gland packing nut. I know mine needs to be adjusted I am getting a small stream of water coming into the engine compartment. I get the idea there is a wearable part behind the nut. Is that correct? If so what is it called?
    How often does is need to be replaced?
    Could this be the cause of my vibration?

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting...holy shit!...what a ride!

    Brian,
    Thanks for the tips. This was much easier than I thought it would be.
