Ticked a stump on pad this weekend and tweaked the prop shaft



I just had the lower unit replaced a few months and need to get it fixed

Anyone know what something like this is going to cost to have the shaft replaced?

Loc: Probably not where you think
Get a LONG piece of pipe, protect the splines on the shaft and get after it.

I almost had a coronary when I saw this done. But he got it within .003 that way without tearing up the bearing carrier.

It's not for the faint hearted !

BUT...this was on a Yamaha, and they say the prop shafts are made of softer steel than many others.

He didn't say what outboard he has. If it's a Merc with the "fat shaft" it's probably not bendable like that.

Very expensive. I had mine on my HPDI straightened and haven't had any problems.

The cost for a new shaft is about $300. Installation at least another $200-300.

Where can you get it that cheap? I think I was quoted over $1,500 at Rockwall marine. Service marine in Emory straightened it for $200.

Well having it straightened defiantly sounds like a better option

Wonder if Steve's can straighten one. I have a little wobble on my 250 SHO, but can't feel it when running.
