Default DUKW bearing repair

Babbit bearing repair job of a DUKW bearing. Three part video.

Despite being a very good machinist, this guy is doing really dangerous stuff i.e. pouring molten metal wearing shorts and a short sleeved shirt, no face protection.

One hundred percent ^^^^ !!! Yikes!

I don't quite understand where that A-frame fitting goes. Is it a driveshaft middle bearing point?
