Thanks

Great videos. Thanks for posting. You made the key point clear....you need to "Clock" the front and rear bearings! This is the most common mistake people make and then they go to slide the prop shaft in and it binds a bit and is hard to slide.

Great videos!!!:))THumbsUp

You can avoid the whole hacksaw the old strut bushing thing by just using a small sharp flat head screwdriver in between the bushing and the strut. You just tap it in with a hammer and it will disintegrate the bushing and pull right out.

Very Nicely Done!

I am a retired HS shop teacher (street rod/v-drive guy) and IMO you did a great job on your videos.
You are to be commended and thanked for sharing the information. :))THumbsUp

Great job on the Video's. Must be nice not having to remove the rudder to get the shaft out.

Mind if I post links to these in the how-to section on Hot Boat Database?
Not at all..... I made these videos to help people out. I've learned so much thru the years from people on forums (especially PB) and from Youtube videos. Thanks for all the replies.

awesome videos thanks for your efforts! for anyone who has never done this before or never replaced a shaft log seal, make sure you take your time when pushing the prop shaft through the log seal and dont spin the shaft or the seal to get it on as the keyway slot in the prop shaft can cut the soft grease lip seals inside. I have ruined a brand new seal by doing this. thanks again for the videos S&S:))THumbsUp:))THumbsUp
