I might take one of the thru-hulls if you were willing to separate them. Let me look at the boat tomorrow to see if I can use both.

Is it up and down or side-to-side play, which would indicate the cutlass bearing is worn, or is it in/out play, which would come down to play in the output shaft of the transmission?

The problem is that if you tap the seal in too far, the seal lips can be up against the bearing. The portion that they'll be touching is stationary, IIRC, but they're not designed to seal when...

77" is a bit narrow for my boat, so can you be a bit more specific on the measurement? Is 77" the distance from the outside edges of the mounting feet, or is it the centerline of the leg? When you...

It's normal for the temperature to climb when you run it hard, then pull back to idle. That said, your temperature rise seems a bit high - but I don't have your motor.

Most likely cause, IMHO, is...
