Cutlass Bearing Replacement Version 1.0 – October 15, 2007 By: Bill Wildner Introduction The cutlass bearing should be replaced from time to time. When and if you decide to do this in simple terms this is the procedure: 1. Remove the rudder 2. Remove the prop shaft 3. Remove the old cutlass bearing 4. Install new bearing 5. Install prop shaft 6. Install rudder The cutlass bearing is a stock part or available from most marine supply stores, I bought my last one from West Marine. I took my old one once removed to them and they matched the size from there catalog. Procedure 1. Remove the Rudder If you need help with this see the Rudder bearing replacement article will provide details of removing the rudder. If your lower bearing is loose you may want to replace it while you have the rudder out. 2. Removing the prop shaft To accomplish this you will need to separate the coupling from the shaft at the back of the transmission. Most shafts will not just pull out after loosening the 2 lock screw but it is worth a try. If it comes out consider your self lucky, if not I think this is the easiest way to remove the coupling from the shaft. Take the 4 bolts holding the shaft coupling to the transmission coupling. Slide the shaft back to open a gap between the 2 coupling halves. Place a socket or similar object between the end of the trans shaft and the prop shaft that is smaller diameter than the prop shaft. This socket will be used to push the shaft out of the coupling as you use the coupling bolts to draw the coupling halves back together. You will most likely need to do this twice, once with a short socket and again with one a bit longer. This is a tedious process in a confined space yet will get the job done. Once you have the coupling separated remove the key from the shaft and the shaft should slide out the back of the boat. 3. Remove the cutlass Bearing The Cutlass bearing is held in by set screws in the side of the strut, remove these screws. Try to press the bearing out of the strut. If you are lucky it will come out, if not do not despair. What to do is cut the bearing to release it from its press fit. Just get a fine tooth hacksaw blade, a - 1 -
