Re: Runout of Axle shafts on 1947 Custom Super

Likewise can't offer much direct advice but if the bend in the shaft was in a place that altered the mating of the bearing rollers with their bearing race rather than just at the taper end itself, then I'd say it would be essential to have the shaft straightened, otherwise the rear wheel bearings will have be misaligned which to some extent would affect their service life. Likewise the runout, again if before the taper, would shorten the life of the axle shaft seal.

If the runout of 0.003" was solely caused by a bend in the shadt after the bearing and seal surface, I don't think I'd be overly concerned about it.
