Re: Pulling our 31

Is this the Prop strut?







If so, mine does not look anything like that.

Re: Pulling our 31

Yes thats the prop strut. It fell out when we pulled the prop shaft. You can see in the early pics that it was leaking around it. I think the PO added another layer of glass to try to stop the leak.

Re: Pulling our 31

interesting install for a strut.. I thought most had bolts and plate type flange.

Re: Pulling our 31

I ordered the strut from Rudy at D&R. ### plan ahead on this one, it took about 3 weeks to get it because it had to be cast, they do not stock them. The new strut comes with a new cutlass installed. Everything else I got from Jimmy Bus at Boatworks. 850-785-5502. Rudy is very knowledgeable about your Oday and Jimmy is a great guy and very helpful and can get about anything else you need. If you need any other questions answered, don't hesitate to ask. As you said.... been down that trail!!

Re: Pulling our 31

Did you have to cut the shaft to get the old one out?

Re: Pulling our 31

No, we uncoupled from the engine and then loosened the bolts and it came loose with a few blows with a 2 LB hammer. Because we planned to replace shaft and coupler, I wasn't concerned with damaging it with a hammer. In the overall scheme of things, the little bit extra to replace coupler, shaft and log were worth it. I know it wont be an issue for many years to come. Our strut fell out when I pulled the shaft. The only thing that kept it from hitting the ground was the bonding wire that was still attached. Check our pictures and you can see how we prepared the inside and outside and how we built it up. We put bolts in during build up and then attached washers and nuts and bonding wire when complete. So far, solid and no leaks.
