Hylas Discussion / Hull bearing....forward bearing just aft of stuffing box
« Last post by Windswept on November 21, 2022, 08:08:15 PM »
G'day members. We  have hull #028 H-46. I am starting to get a slight wobble/knock sound from aft cabin/head area. I know the cutlas is good at the last yard (2months ago) as cutlas was checked. No movement there. ;)

It is my understanding the bearing just aft of the stuffing box is a flange bearing. Is it possible for this flange bearing to go bad when the cutlas bearing is good?

If this is so......my thinking is, the previous owner changed cutlass bearing without changing flange bearing and now the flange bearing is going south on me??

Having said that, has anyone changed this flange bearing? if so....do you have direction/hints for removal and replacement?

Thanks heaps!
Don

Hylas Discussion / Re: Northern Lights Generator AC connections

Just to close the loop on why the generator was tripping, there was a ground wire from at the neutral side of the AC panel.  The original generator must not have the neutral and ground connected at the generator.  With the new generator when this connection was made, it tripped the breaker.

Once this ground wire was removed, the breaker no longer tripped.

Ground and neutral are now only connected at the generator, which is in according to ABYC specs.

It took a good marine electrician to figure this one out.  Bottom line, check how the old generator is wired prior to removing it.  That was my original mistake.

We are hull #64. The aforementioned still works fine. Replaced ours two years ago and upgraded to a standard engine coupling and key on Legacy.

We were successful by removing the cutlass on the strut, offset the shaft and it barely pulled it past the rudder skeg. After removing the shaft completely we then removed the hull cutlass. Hardest part was removing the cutlass out of the strut. Getting the prop (flex a fold) was not too easy either. No real tips, just perseverance was the trick. We are hull #53

The previous post describes removing the shaft on a 49 by removing both cutlass bearings and sliding it out on one side of the skeg. Can anyone confirm that this will work for later hull numbers, specifically #46 and up? I assume the procedure for reinstallation would be to first insert the shaft into the strut, then slide both cutlass bearings on the shaft, then tap the hull cutlass into place and lastly press the strut cutlass in?

I replaced Windswepts 028 with SS wire reinforcement hose....just because. I also made sure those same seacocks worked! Needless to say, they were tight. Free now! ;)
