Hi Dennis:

It's been a number of years since I changed mine, but here are my thoughts,

I'm not sure. but I think it was a plywood core. The original 
installation left the strut slightly out of alignment - the reason I 
removed it.
To align the strut I used a 1"dowel or a piece of pipe that would snugly 
fit the inside of the strut when the cutlass bearing was removed.

I used very large washers, or a metal pad on the inside of the hull 
since I could see some indentations from the smaller washers used in the 
original installation.

Good luck.
