Morse water lubricated bushings feature precision designed, specially formulated nitrile rubber that is molded to fit shafts in accordance with U.S. Navy BuShips clearances. These cutlass bearings are environmentally friendly, oil and chemical resistant, and have excellent vibration dampening qualities.
Grit particles and other abrasives wash into grooves and are flushed away, protecting the shaft and prolonging bearing life. Cutlass bearins can also be used as rudder-stock and pintle bushings. These bushings are commonly installed by press-fitting and locked in place with set screws.

Where there is wear on the inside of the bearing support assembly what modern adhesives do you recommended to prevent a replacement bearing revolving?Thanks,Joe
I have no idea what to recommend other than to talk to the yard for advice.
Dear Joe,I hired the yard to install the bearing.There is lots of info on line on how to remove and install the bearing. Most require a special tool to make the job easier. There should be set screws on the strut bearing housing to hold the bearing in place and keep it from turning. My boat required the rudder to be dropped to remove the prop shaft taking it out of my league so I turned it over to the yard.Good Luck! Chris
There should be set screws in the bearing housing that hold the bearing.
Thanks for your attention but none of you have addressed my question. Does anyone know of a suitable adhesive to stop the shaft bearing revolving. I taken it out because it revolves in use and will eventually damage the housing. Cyprus yards are best avoided they are all Greek owned, their work unreliable and expensive. thanks, Joe
how do I remove a cutlass baring?
I used a hacksaw to carefully cut through the brass casing the full length of the old bearing and then pounded it out with a blunt chisel.
Not what was advertised
The web site online store showed item as a Johnson Duramax cutlass bearing but what I received was a Morse bearing. Not what I ordered. I cancelled order. I'm sure Morse is a good product but not what I wanted.
