New Prop

Ordered a new 3 blade Campbell Sailer Prop and am in the middle of changing it. I decided to change the Stern tube to stuffing box hose and the cutlass bearing while everything is accessible and ran into a problem, could not get the shaft out to pull the cutlass bearing. Now I need to make a tool to remove the bearing and press the new one in without removing the shaft.
