    Alternates to through hull alignment factory procedure

    We are in a situation where I need to replace my through hull bearing. Was wondering what my options are. I have access to a machine shop that manufactures hydraulic components. With that in mind, they have offered to manufacture this alignment tool I need. My question being what size is this bar stock? I understand the throw out is .005 in its entire length. How long is it? Can this be done on the cheap? Or do I just throw down the $400 for the proper tool?

    You can make the shaft. Someone here has the specs, can't remember who. I can loan you the tool that attaches to the crank of the engine.

    20 MM Dia Steel Rod CRS 1144 (Ground and Polished) 36" Long
    OD is .7874 + 0 /- .003
    One end turned and polished to .710 + 0 /-.001 2" long
    notice + zero/ - a hair
    I'm pleased with mine. Not stainless steel... so keep it oiled.

    Are you rebuilding the Through-hull bearing and seals too?

    Cheers!

    Yes that is the plan... It's SO HOT here and I cannot stress how tempted I am to not rebuild it, but I will! So this rod is not 36" Long? It's only 2"?

    I read that the rod is 36 inches long and the 2 inches of the end is slightly tapered( so it fits into the coupler)

    terminology is slightly off sorry for the tired post

    "One end turned and polished to .710 + 0 /-.001 2" long"

    Simply telling him what i read this to mean, infact now i see it as the 2 inches long, was polished and what not
