Cutlass bearing

Not having replaced a cutlass bearing before, I am about to be educated I''m sure, but first, a few questions for anyone who might know something about them. Actually, about replacing them.
First, is it possible to remove the prop shaft, replace the bearing, and replace the shaft, without having to repack the stuffing box?
This sounds like it would be easiest, if it will work. Any other tips?
