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.
It may be the case, but I still want to take it in to the shop and see what they say. I found some cheaper rebuild kits on summit. How do I know which one it is?

Here's a couple tools we made for removing/installing the prop shaft nut/hub:

Removed some material in the socket to make room for the radius on the nut.
