Anywhere upstream of the raw water pump. Tap into the hose and then you have circulating water when the engine is running.

Don't forget to drain the feed hose to the seal in the winter. You need to plug that hose if you put in antifreeze or it will just run out the hull when winterizing.

You are on the right track. Just a tad bit off on the tie-in. No big deal at this point in time. Just put a straight piece back in place of the tee fitting and move on.

What is the significance over Dripless vs Stuffing box packing?
Old school box just drips 5-6 drops a minute.
GFO packing material, this is the "Gore + Teflon+ Graphite" this packing is Virtually dripless
Sorry but I don;t get it.
Please explain,thank you

I would expect the raw water pump to be pulling in air from the dripless and have a problem priming from the bucket.
