Marine intermediate shaft bearing.* works

When the roller bearing cage fell apart on my Dodge intermediate bearing, I went shopping for a split bearing like the Craft Bearing.* The advantages seemed to outweight the added expense.

I don't remember whose brand I purchased, but*after installation, there was just too much heat produced due to a longer surface contact area.* May just be due to my installation situation.

Was able to return it, then bought a replacement Dodge roller bearing.**Runs cool, but yes - must remove the shaft if it fails.* It took 25 years for the first one to fail.
