On one of my alpha drives, the shaft is a bit loose (about 1/2 inch play when pulling on the prop) as compaired to the other one. I read that this may indicate the the cutlass bearing may need replacing.

Has anyone every had to do this on theirs? Whats involved?

Wow....that sounds serious! I don't mess around with outdrives. I change my own oil and that is it. Tolerances are so close in them, and I really do not have those specific tools anyways.

I believe it is by Mercury Hammer


Same guy I talked to about the impellers (see other thread for story line) told me that there is suppose to be some play on the shaft when pulling on the prop and not to worry about it. If that is true (which I doubt) why then is theother prop tight and there is no play when pulling on it?
