It's easy, but you can easily mess up the strut.

Hope you don't have to replace the strut but if you do:
Long story-short, Weds. night race, end of August, usually no air. Blowing 25 when we leave the dock, get hit with a 43 mph gust, blown over. Foredeck drops jib sheet. Gets wrapped around shaft which gets bent and strut torn off. No one hurt, insurance covers all. However, J Boats does not have the strut. TPI Composites still has the mold and can make you one-don't take it off unless necessary. Might be best to have the yard replace cutlass bearing. It is not a big ticket item.
Mark-Interesting that your shaft dia is 25mm, which is nearly 1". Do you have the Yamar 1gm10? Mine is 3/4" and from another thread I started on transmission ratios, there's at least 2 different trans ratios out there for J/92's. Take-away-lots of differences between J/92 builds.
