Question Volvo Shaft Seal

Has anybody got any negative feedback about the Volvo Shaft Seal/Rubber Stuffing Box?

I'm refitting to cross oceans, so reliability is key.

I'm a bit concerned about the comment on the data sheet about flexible drives.

1) My Volvo Penta 2003 has rubber aft feet - does this count?
2) Does the VP comment just apply to Aquadrives and the like or does it apply also to semi-flexible couplings like the R&D ones?
