PCS Cutlass Bearing

Hello BillyRuffn, wellas you can see by the diagram the S.S. tube that is the backbone of the rudder is olny under the surface of the fibberglass,but I decided to try digging it out just in case,NO LUCK but thanks for offering me another possibility.At this point I have the 3bladed Max Prop off,the coupling half at the trans. off and the entire packing nut and stuffing box removed and I am in the process of unbolting the transmission mounts then I can chainfall the motor up high enough to slide the shaft under the motor enough to give me room to remove the cutlass bearing.I have replaced at least 5-6 bearings in my time but never like this.I can,t get the shaft out without motor removal which seems strange with a boat that seems to have so much quality and thought put in it.Again ,thanks for the input,guess I will continue along the way I am going for now.LES
