If the bend is at the tip of the shaft at the prop end, you are probably not going to be able to have it straightened close enough to the .002" run out tolerance that is recommended. I ran over something with my father in law's MC years ago, bent the prop and shaft up and investigated having it straightened. Contacted a company (in NC I believe) that another member had used to straighten a bent shaft, and when I told them where it was bent, they said it wasn't going to be something they could fix properly.

New shaft from skidim, refurbished prop, some glass work, and I was good to go.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
