Hi Baggy
you appear to have put the gland follower the wrong way round.
Remove it and make sure the packing has not pushed out and gone into the body of your pump.

Gland packing nut is on the wrong way round. Also make sure the piston will go past the packing and into the bore. You may have a turn of the PTFE rope stuck under the edge of the piston stopping it go fully in. I put my piston in and put the packing around it to make sure.,

Your gland nut on your globe valve appears to be cross threaded as well
