The guys at North West Propshaft did a wonderful quick job fixing the centre bearing. And talking me through control of the axial movement.
The stern tube bearing has two little grub screws on it that are supposed to be attached to the prop shaft, but these seem to have come loose.
Once these were done up the prop shaft was re-attached at the splined end
The universal joint reattached
And the new bearing fixed down
All in all. Jobs a good one 🙂
