Jim the PSS bellow tube still needs to go onto the shaft log tube. So it's still about ID and OD sizes.
I did a PSS on my boat some 5 yrs ago, no regrets. and there is dust where there used to be water dripping :)

This looks so easy under "show conditions" LOL

Shaft alignment;

what shaft logs look like. there are many types, but yours is most likely something like this. In my boat it's a FG tube.

You're Welcome Jim :)
funny, doing a search for 1-7/8" only PSS comes up for the bellows, they call it a "stern tube" Loose fitting hose will leak even with good clamps!

The barbs on cast bronze parts aren't usually well defined like the machined parts done on lathes

Just amazing how well those metal cutting wheels work Jim isn't it? I have a 14" metal chop saw and when doing things on the wheeled cradle for my boat it's usually easier to use the grinder with cutting wheel

Tada!

I will say, I am REALLY glad that I had the shaft and flange fit and faced. The shop made sure the flange slid on fairly easily, which made assembly easy.

Looks great Jim!
