Installing A Cutlass Bearing, Old School.
As you may recall, before I was so rudely interrupted by some eruptions we were in the throws of removing the Cutlass Bearing from Sweet Pea. On Tuesday we went by George Butlers place to remove the bearings and install the new ones. One we had at the Railway in the parts room and the other was picked up locally at Jennings Boat Yard, the former Rice marine Railway.
Yup keeping it all in the family. There are two cutless bearings so it had to be removed with the shaft out, which of course opens up all kinds of can off worms. But the weather is great, and so our my pals, who make it fun. I will let the photos do the talkn since I cant butcher the spelling with pictures.
Great way to start the day. “That tool” is called a chain wrench and a nice way to hold or turn anything round. I used mine this week. The toy truck is priceless! Thanks for sharing.
I have a full box full of NOS Cutless Bearings all different sizes. The big issue is nobody knows what size they need. I’ve been trying to sell them for $40 each with free shipping and only sold one to a friend. Anybody need one?
Glad you are up and around and doing projects!
Been there done that with the cutlass B. job….get it back on and Go Boating!

Good story Matt! I can’t believe you found a bearing at the railway after moving all those parts around, during the renovation. Brings the price of the railway down a couple of dollars. The nurse from yesterday must have fixed you up. Great to see you back in action.
china jack leaked? that whole press is a cheap china piece of junk. Id be afraid to build up much pressure on that piece of crap.
Here’s my buddy l
Mine are wall hangers.
Matt, I love the truck! What a find!
It sounds like you are feeling better, I hope so!
By the look of that intermediate bearing, it appears to be heavily loaded to either the top or bottom, don’t know the bearing orientation, however.
