I am in the process of replacing my prop shaft and cutless bearing on my Catalina 30. The problem I''ve found is with the strut. I can''t seem to get the cutless bearing out. I even went in with a hacksaw like my local expert recommended. I also noticed there is a little bit of electrolysis on the front and rear of the strut which makes it very soft so I''m afraid I might bugger it up a little. The soft bronze doesn''t seem to extend more than 1/8 inch into the tube. Does anyone have some advice on getting the bearing out without damaging the strut? Can you heat it up maybe? Thanks.
