Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

I didn't have it at high rpm's in either gear so i can't really answer that. It's hard to turn on both directions, even when it's disconnected. I will look into places to work with the tides but I...

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

I think you nailed it. Any suggestions? Happy to replace everything but need to get to that spot first. How fast does it tear those things up?

Re: control cables

Thank you! I imagine I can find this around these parts too. I'm going to measure from the engine side and decipher the extra length on this en
Oh if all my boat problems were so easy to solve. . . .

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

The shaft log/stern tube/thru hull. I had a hard time figuring out what it was called and that seems to get me the most results.
Yes, we viewed the shaft in the water. Its very murky and polluted...

Re: control cables

Yes, i meant feet. But the throttle cable seems longer as it goes further into the engine area. Its much looser too but i think thats from age. I would just pull it out but i'm not ready to replace...

Re: Pearson 36-2

Have another question. Any idea the size or length of the throttle and shifter cables? I think they are 3/8" od but a blog i saw shows 24' long which seems unreasonable.
Help?

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

Ok, we put a load on the tranny and everything is fine there. We have pushed back the shaft and can see that the shaft is rusted where it sits in the stern log. We don't know how much damage yet. It...

Re: Pearson 36-2

Thank you, I emailed them. Not sure what will come of it but I know we need a little help. I can't believe you have that great boat sitting in Long Beach when you're in Vietnam. I sailed from Long...

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

We looked underwater and appears nothing is on the shaft binding it up. We believe it is the stern bearing. I don't know how to get a picture up here to show you our set up. If it is the stern...

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

If it's not just build up, what would you advise? We've been sailing for five years in warm water. Now its just mud and clay in brackish water so i'd assume a lot of that has died but there was...

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

Thank you for the information. I know the toilet seacock has some growth for sure. If I try to remedy this from inside the boat won't a lot of water come in while I'm trying to poke it? Tomorrow we...

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

I think we could swim for a little bit. Locals do once in a while.

Re: Prop Shaft Bearings

Yes, we can move the shaft...
