Strut-ProTM tools are available in a variety of combinations, allowing you to customize your product for your particular needs. If you are a marine repair facility you will benefit most with one of our complete kits to handle a variety of sizes. A boat owner who wants to be prepared for unknown circumstances, however, can order the tool assembly for just his or her particular shaft and bearing size.
(Part Number 00121NAME) Boat owners around the world have found tremendous benefits in owning a Strut-ProTM tool assembly for their boat. A strut bearing failure can happen anytime either through age or restriction of water flow to the bearing. This is usually due to fishing line, underwater growth, even nets or rope becoming wrapped around the prop shaft. Misalignment is also a main contributor to bearing wear. If you are traveling to areas where services and supplies are limited it is a good idea to have an replacement bearing on board “just in case”. With Strut-ProTM Bearing Replacement tools many boat owners now replace their worn strut bearing without even hauling their vessel.
When ordering for a single size bearing replacement, you will need to know the propeller shaft diameter and outside diameter of the bearing (bore of the strut). This is exactly the same information needed to order a replacement strut bearing from a marine supply store. We use the same code as the Johnson Duramax® names for each strut bearing. You can cross reference when using Morse or other bearing brands. You order the tool and a bearing replacement assembly by bearing name. For example, to order the single tool assembly for a 1 1/4” shaft x 2” bearing you would order (1) Part #: 00121 (Tool Only), and (1) “BITE”, or the actual order number is 00121 BITE. Refer to the accompanying chart sizes and bearing names for ordering. You can always call or email us if you need assistance.
