Neil, just a side note never use acetone for 5200 clean up. use alcohol or mineral spirits. Acetone will combine with the 5200 and reduce its strength and possible prevent it from curing fully. I like to remove most of the excess with a putty knife and then use a rag dampened with alcohol to wipe up the remainder.

Mission acomlished. Strut was rebedded with 5200.
The strut bolt holes were filled with 5200 as was the space under the washers for the strut bolts. This was alowedto dry over night. Then the new prop shaft was installed and the prop strut was faired in. Over all Im happy with it should get me by for at least the next 5-10 years. Thanks for all the advice guys worth every penny.
I have some pictures of the repair ill post them once I get them on the computer.

Whew...I'll bet you are glad you are done with that job.

Now the job is to get it out of your hair, mustache, beard and all those spots you "scratched"
