Re: How often do I need to replace my cutlass bearing?
No set schedule. Look at it and wiggle it when it comes out. If you were replacing the shaft of pulling it at any time, I would say to replace it as it is a low cost oart and no need to expense pulling everything again.
We had our prop shaft replaced and also a drippless shaft system put in, even though the Cutlass was ok it was 7 years old so we elcted to replace it as the shaft was already pulled. The cutlass bearing was only $75
