I need to remove my prop shaft to replace the composite strut bearing. I loosened the two collars on the shaft behind the thrust bearing, and the shaft can not be pulled out. Do I need to remove the thrust bearing? Is there a set screw inside the thrust bearing? Any how-to videos or advice would be appreciated by this mechanically impared owner. My boat is a 1985 Heddon 5 Litre.
