Cutlass Bearing Replacement, 1985 Najad 343
My boatyard told me that the cutlass bearing on my 1985 Najad 343 really needs
replacement. But neither they nor I can figure out how best to access, remove, and replace the bearing. There is a bronze fitting on the external end of the tube through which the prop shaft exits, but it is not at all obvious how that fitting can be romved or opened. Or is there some other way to replace the bearing?
Also, how can I identify the manufacturer and part number for the bearing? Are there any other pieces that should be replaced at the same time as a cutleass bearing?
