It sounds to me like your engine is out of alighnment or the prop shaft was already worn in the area of the cutlass bearing.
Did you run the engine while on the hard with it in gear?
Has the strut been whacked and bent? If the shaft ok and the strut isn''t bent, do this...since you can''t perform this test with a worn out CB,replace the bearing and reinstall the shaft. Make sure the bolts that connect the tranny output flange and the prop shaft flange are tight and there are no problems in that area. Now look at the rubber in the bearing where the shaft enters the CB and where it exits the CB. You should see the rubber buldging on one end of the CB and opposite of it on the other end. Now you can adjust your engine alighnment.
