Corrosion/debris accumulation (whatever you call it) can lock them in pretty tight, I have often had to cut them out or press them out so be prepared to do so.

Qualified on the subject

Psneeld, I've read some of your other posts on this subject - sounds like you've felt the pain. Would you ever remove the shaft log unless completely necessary? It looks as though a lot of these single chb 's have the same shaft log- surely they would have the same cutlass bearing

I wouldn't unless I had a really bad leak from it.

Suggestions to insert a fiberglass insert sound promising if there is room.
