Packing behind Packing Nut on PTO -- Question about it.

I have removed the PTO shaft from my 1936 WC and in the process I also cleaned off some built up dirt/oil and have awakened a leak. Its coming from the PTO Packing Nut area, and before I tear into this I wanted to find out what I was getting myself into. What is the packing material, and what is the process of putting new packing material.
Also part 2 -- While I have the PTO shaft out I was wondering how to tell if I need to put in a new bearing in the Rear Bearing PTO Housing. What kind of test should I use to determine if it is worth replacing. The shaft turns freely without any grinding, and it was full of grease when I tried greasing it for the first time.

Could you just tighten the packing nut a little? Might stop the leak. As for the bearing, if it is smooth and doesn't make noise at speed and had grease you are OK. Just grease it once in a while.
