Anyone in the marine repair industry is aware of the many complications normally involved with replacing a worn strut bearing the old fashioned way. It usually does something like this:
First you remove the prop, then loosen the flange on the gear (transmission) of course the fasteners are usually rusted or corroded. Next you remove the propeller shaft from the strut (is the boat blocked up high enough to remove the shaft?- if not you’ll need to raise the boat or dig a hole to drop the shaft into…) If the shaft is in line with the rudder, then it too requires removal. This means disconnecting the steering. All said, this takes many hours of labor, and is not always damage free.
With Strut-Pro® Bearing Replacement Tools this process goes a whole lot smoother since there is no removal of the propeller shaft, strut or rudder. There is no cutting, beating or destruction of any kind. Strut fasteners and bedding do not required repair because there is no pressure applied to any area other than the strut. All done in an hour or less.
