Update

Finally made some progress on my beloved "Beatercraft." Ended up sawing the old coupler off the broken shaft with a sawzall which was much easier than expected. Next, the strut bearings came out with the hack saw/screwdriver/hammer trick and the strut finally fell off, so I could re-install the frozen plastic bearings on the bench. Thanks for the tip!

Did a little gelcoat repair above the prop as well as touching up the glue around the prop log with 5200. Re-packed the rudder packing gland (first time since '03 whoops) ARE shaft went in as advertised...piece of cake. Had to trim the rubber prop log seal about 1/2" back to fit the tool in there. Replacement prop fit like a charm...engine alignment, not so much...

Engine mounts

New mounts are in...any sage advice? I'm hoping the mounts aren't seized up with the attaching blocks. Better hit it with PB blaster.

Just to save anybody else the trouble, make sure to loosen up the nut on the smaller threads on the mounts about 1/4" then tap it in so you can separate the mount from the attaching block. Had to learn this one the hard way.
