Cutlass Bearing for Beneteau 36cc

Beneteau Oceanis 36cc Marblehead
I am in desperate need to replace the cutlass bearing on my 2000 Beneteau 36cc and I found a dealer who may have what I need - since ordering one from Beneteau parts right now is impossible due to their systems breakdown. Has anyone done this before and/or would you know the specs? I know it's the 30mm diameter one, but does it come in different lengths and if so what length does my 36cc require?

I have the same questions for my 440. What size to order. Deep Blue Yacht Supply said they didn't have a way to look it up. BeneteauUSA is defunct I am guessing? Also, saw a video where the guy replaced his without removing shaft. He made it look too easy. To remove my shaft I believe I'd have to drop the rudder (or lift the motor and pull it into the boat). Any tricks to removing the old bearing without pulling shaft? Thanks for any advice offered!

You need outer diameter and inner diameter – you can measure pretty effectively with a caliper. The old one is loose so should should slide right off. Remove the prop - not the shaft. Use lots of dish soap and you’ll get it in about 1/2 way by hand and use a mallet the rest of the way. The one thing I really wish I had done is to cut a length of PVC - put that over the shaft and then you can use the mallet to pound it in.
