Is the shaft tube worn on the inside where the cutless bearing was spinning?
If so, that’ll have to be repaired or replaced, as the cut less needs a pretty tight fit in order to do what it’s intended to.
There’s a company that makes a modified cut less bearing that uses a sleeve that spins with the shaft, could that be what you’re looking at?
