    Is it wise to oil stuffing box face with locking nut  for easier adjusting in future

    I use White Lithium grease on it with no ill effects. I keep a tube on board and lightly coat everything that has threads which may need to be disassembled at some point. I also use it to grease my through hull rubber whatchamacallits that rotate inside the bronse housing.
