    Hello everyone,

    I have 3 cutless bearings on each shaft, which are labelled on the drawing as Cutless rubber 450 LG, 370 LG and 300 LG.

    Could anyone explain, what these numbers and LG refer too?

    Thanks and regards.

    If this is a large and long shaft, the numbers are MM in length.
    Guessing, LG may be for glass tube.

    I think the LG just stands for Log Gland, the length of the bearing shell.

    Thank you for your input.

    Yes, the shaft is quite long (10.156 mtr long and 100 mm diam).

    I also think that the numbers stand for the bearing shell length. LG can be about bronze, taking into account, that the boat was originally built in Australia and they could use British designation.
