There is a $400 tool that attaches to the shaft and allows you to press the bearing out of the strut, then reverse the tool and press a new bearing in. [/QUOTE]

MidL do you have a pic of that tool ??? I know the 5 C-30 owners at my YC would have scows on thier faces on seeing said pic. [/QUOTE]

I don't have a pic myself, but have seen an article on the C36 Owners site detailing the removal and replacement process usig this tool with detailed pictures. The C36 Association owns the tool needed to replace the cutlass bearing along with a few other specialized tools and members can borrow them just for the cost of shipping each way.

It appears the C36 site is having issues because I am being denied access to the members area of the site even though I show as logged in. I saw an e-mail from another member saying there were blocked also so the problem seems to be on their end. I'll try to remember to forward you a pic when I can get access.

Thaks all for your help. As blt2ski advised, it does seem there may be enough room between the hull and the cockpit-to lift the shaft up, (which I will grease-what's the best?). When the shaft is up, the rudder pulls off aft. As for my cutlas bearing, I discovered Gilles in Annapolis for Jeanneau parts. My cutlass bearing arrives from France in a few days! The cost, including shipping-$65 (1/2 of the cost being the later). As to the coupler stories, and checking the shaft-i.e removing it- I have yet to decide, but it seems prudent to do it, when the bearing is new-any thoughts?

Hey SeaDeucer,
Did you do the replacement yet? If so, how did it go? Could you post a link to your source for Jeanneau parts? I did a quick search but couldn't find it.
thanks,
dave
