Shaft bearing replacement....the modern way

The old way of removing the shaft and cutting the bearing out is history!!! unless you have a full keel, and I'm working on that one.
My new tool is awesom.
Out with the old


In with the new

Nice Pat!
But, how do you inspect the shafting for galling, and other signs of adverse surface wear, etc.?

Rich,
There is enough clearance to visualize the shaft. In the light and shadow all the ridges will show. If there is any question about the shaft at that time. Pull it. But why go thru all the hassle if it's not needed.

I have used one of those for years

You have to be carefull with some struts though.............

As Tim Allen used to say.....MORE POWER......................

And you left out the secret of pulling the props....do you have that/those

part(s)?

Aloha Pat,
Can you explain what each of the parts in your photos is doing? I take it that the hydraulics is to clamp to the shaft and the green thing is forcing the bearing out. Is that correct? What kind of damage could you do if it was out of alignment or is that possible?

John,
you are basicly correct. Since the alignment is determeined by the bearing/shaft interface. The press uses the shaft as a guide so no damage can be done.
