It's 5.5" long, 1.5" shaft by 2" od

Just seeing if anyone had good/bad experiences with a paticular bearing.
Thanks for the link

Re: Cutlass bearing replacement

This is the only bearing then that will fit your situation from my link: Johnson Duramax - Cutless Bearings Naval Brass Sleeve: Standard Size, Model Number: BOSS
You might (or might not) have to shave 1/2" off the bearing in my link as it is 6" long - you know, regular size!!!
That link I posted also sells non-brass bearings.

The standard 4" naval brass bearing for a 1" shaft have worked flawlessly for us for just over a year now.

Re: Cutlass bearing replacement

There are a number of companies that supply composite bearings to what ever size of shaft, carrier and length you require. Just search for composite marine bearings and you'll find one. This is what is typically used in commercial boats these days.
