I dropped the strut and the prop off at Sheffield Propellers in Portland. They will straighten the strut and install a new bushing as the old bushing is cracked. And they will repair the prop. The prop shaft is bent pretty bad and Cecil at Elberts is going to try and straighten it for me at not charge.
I would like to thank boonejeepin (Russ) for answering all my questions. He has been through this before and was a huge help. It was great to be able to call him whenever I got stuck or needed advice.
I should have the boat back in a week and the strut and prop by Friday. Stay tuned.
