Re: Cutlass bearing replacement

Progress.

You need a bearing that fits your stern tube and shaft diameter (sounds kinda dirty no?).
Choose one of these and be done with it unless you want a fancier composite Cutless bearing: Cutlass Bearings - Johnson Duramax Cutless Bearing - Naval Brass Inch
4" seems to be a fairly standard size length for these bearings.

Brown stuff: could be old polyester resin? Who knows. Replace it with thickened epoxy.
