Yes, I'm sure they would have! I got all struts off in 6 hrs...I should have called them to get it done the few days before...I am Meathead! Lol.. Anyway, the second 6'' bearing when in quickly, compared to the first one. Tighten and tap with the hammer, really made the difference. The tap made them move. Not time to freeze them, that is a good idea. BUT, this is the last time I will remove and put them in. I will take them to the Machine shop in CM. I know for a fact they work on all kinds of marine stuff, shafts, struts, rudders etc... They straightened out my Chris-Craft Dory rudder last year when a sand bar jumped out at me going 30knots. AND I was in the channel...unreported or newly unmarked shoal .
