What would be the effect of too small gaps between the sealing ring and scraper ring segments of a piston rod stuffing box on a large slow-speed diesel engine?

Answer:

Too small gaps could close due to the radial wear of the rings before the next scheduled overhaul preventing the rings from contacting the piston rod and sealing it.
