New KOYO Bearing, new shaft slinger. Shaft is straight. Clean used piece. $300 plus shipping. I will post pics soon. PM me if interested
The shafts are hardened to make them stronger to the best of my knowledge. No spec avail on the rockwell #. Shaft is made by American Turbine, but comparable shafts are also made(AQ, Agressor, etc.)How hard is this shaft? (Rockwell #).....All the jet shafts are hard chromed on the working ends. What additionally was done to this one? And why?.........Ray (experienced hard chromer)
Thanks. I was just curious about the "hardening". The magnetic issue would mean it is steel, correct?....Although some stainless is magnetic I don't think stainless is the right material for a jet shaft. Hard chrome is also magnetic, and is used in high wear areas to prolong shaft life. I'm still curious about the Rockwell spec if anyone else might have any information as to how hard is good, and how hard is edging up to brittle?.........I imagine a race shaft is hardened to prevent "twist up" under extreme loads, mega horsepower applications......But again, how hard is too hard?.........RayThe shafts are hardened to make them stronger to the best of my knowledge.

This shaft ran for a full season in my boat behind 800 hp. I thought I had a stock shaft and bought an Aquamet shaft to deal with the abuse. Come to find out that this one is magnetic...
Not at all, Those vents were going to take valuable machine time that couldn't be made up. Machine time is $150.00 per hour.So that is why my vents did not get done
