Looks good! I tore mine apart today and the shaft pressed off OK! My stuffing box is only 1 3/4". Yours was 2", I guess the Allmands weren't standard. I'll post my pictures in a new thread this next week. I'm taking pictures as I go along.
Took this past week off to do our short haul. New bottom paint and replace the stuffing box, coupler and cutlass bearing. All was going well til the cutlass bearing. While pressing the old bearing out the strut started to fall apart. Crap! Galvanic corrosion. All because the PO got lazy and didn't replace zincs.
Spent the last 2 days getting access to the area where the strut is bolted on. Remove a holding tank. Remove the fuel tank and yes it was full. Ground out 2 of the bolts today. Should be able to get the other 2 tomorrow and then grind out the strut. What a PIA but I'm glad I discovered the problem before the strut failed.
We splashed Thursday, and took the boat today. Had a little trouble starting her (batteries were lower than I expected), but eventually she started. Everything ran great! The packing gland dripped like it was supposed to. Maybe a bit too much, but not incredibly so, and I'll deal with that. I reached in over the engine at one point and although the engine was still hot, the stuffing box wasn't. So, I take that as a good sign.
