New cutlass bearing for sabre 28-1?

So a couple of weeks ago I became a proud owner of a 1972 Sabre 28 (hull #13). The boat was just hauled out for the winter a couple of days ago, and the yard called me to informed me about it, and , as an aside, they told me my cutlass bearing was lose and needed replacement. I will check it myself tomorrow, but, being new to the inboard engines, I am somewhat clueless in this regard. So, does anybody know what is the maximum free play for cutlass bearing on that boat? The PO was extremely meticulous about the boat, and the engine was replaced only 3 years ago, so I cannot imagine he would not check it out himself during the engine installation...

Never mind. It's a lose strut and Sabre yachts have a repair procedure in place to fix it...
