    How do you pull old packing from stuffing box. It's real tight for space.

    The most useful tools I've used are dental picks. Come in sets. Be careful they are sharp.

    I tried once without one of these - lots of swearing and no positive results. Bought the tool and had them both replace in no time. The tool is priceless for removal, especially if the packing is old and super compressed.
