80,000 Lb. Tensile Steel Collets
Made Entirely From Structural Steel
Note the hardened steel washers with bronze thrust washers for super smooth, non
galling operation. Heavy hex acorn nuts provide continual use without fatigue. Front
and aft yokes are made of T-1 steel and zinc plated for a long service life.
Say Goodbye To Propeller Shaft, Rudder Or Strut Removal
Bronze Thrust Bearings
One Person Operation
Oil Impregnated Bearings
Anyone in the marine repair industry is aware of the many complications normally
involved with replacing a worn strut bearing. It usually goes something like this: First
you remove the prop, then loosen the flange on the gear (transmission), of which
the fasteners are usually rusted or corroded. Next you remove the propeller shaft
or the strut. If the shaft is in line with the rudder, then it too requires removal.
This means disconnecting the steering. All said, this takes many hours of labor,
a lot of time involved, and not always damage free.
With Strut-Pro® this process goes a whole lot smoother since there is no removal
of the propeller shaft, strut or rudder. There is no cutting, beating or destruction
of any kind. Strut fasteners and bedding do not require repair because there is
no pressure applied to any area other than the strut. All done in an hour or less.
Now, how does that sound?
Collets are what push out the old bearing. Strut Pro collets are precision laser
cut, then hydraulically formed in permanent dies. They are made from high tensile
Grade 80, nearly three times stronger than stainless steel, then ceramic tumbled
and zinc plated.
Prop Puller Plate
With this horseshoe blank your Strut Pro to tool converts to a great 2 or 4 blade Prop Puller. This horseshoe blank goes in place of the aft horseshoe and butts up to the prop shaft. The forward yoke fits to the front of the propeller hub.
