Re: IB30 cutlass bearing removal
ISLANDER BAHAMA 30 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
Most cutless bearings are sleeved, especially in a strut.
- remove shaft
- if press out method using threaded rod, washers, small section of pipe matching ID of bearing does not work (and it usually doesn't), then
- hack saw blade to score the sleeve of the bearing. Once a clean cut is made you peel it in on itself.
