    I like the nylatron or delrin type I got from Dan at canyon marine. Goes by Liquid Dan here on the boards. He has always answered my dumb questions with patience. Also, here is an easy tip for installing the strut bearing. Take a length of all thread with large washers thru bushing then thru the strut and thru the other half of the bushing .Put nuts on each end of the all thread and tighen them down pushing the bearings into the strut.

    Good advice there. Might wanna let the OP know how to get the old ones out first. I use a hacksaw blade and GENTLY cut through the old bushing. Then fold one side toward the other and it should slide out.

    Oh wait, some smart ass is gonna come here and say that I jumped a step.......pull the rudder and prop shaft first. May as well reseal the rudder shaft and prop shaft as long as they're out!

    X's 2 with Dan's products. I've bought a few parts from him. They fit right, good quality, fair prices.

    Default strut bearing

    Jim Wilkes at Wilkes Marine talked me through this over the phone the first time I did it, 10 years ago. He helped me measure it correctly, sent me a Nylatron bearing, and talked me through removing me prop shaft. I cut the old one with a hacksaw blade like Carl said, and gently drove the new one in with a wood block and hammer before cutting to length. It's still in my boat and works great!
