I am going to change the cutless bearing, located in a strut, on my Dyer this spring. This is a 1 3/8 shaft. I am not sure of the I.D. of the strut but will measure when I get a chance. I would like to avoid the hassle of removing the shaft, etc. Has anyone used one of the bearing removal tools like a Strut Pro, or a homemade version, to change the bearing without removing the shaft? Any input would be appreciated.
