Re: Cutlass bearing replacement

I did cut the shaft. There was spalling aft of the cutlass bearing and a healthy groove at the stuffing box.

I guess I will find out later however, I was hoping that someone could tell me that since the housing was fiberglass that bit was probably unlikely.

Hopefully they are not on the inside. It is a real tough spot to get into.
