Consider possibly....


The Gland nut or packing squeezer should slide all the way down and nearly bottom out ....so I am not sure why yours needs 8 rings....


Unless if the kind of stuffing box that has 2 threaded studs on either side that aren't screwed in far enough like mine weren't. If so screw them in further or consider replacing them with shorter studs.
