Prop shaft
« on: February 07, 2018, 06:27:12 PM »

Hi, I am after an unusual prop shaft. I want the outer tube at 10" but the inner shaft at 16". Any ideas please. Many thanks, Peter

Buy a 16 inch propshaft, remove end bearing and shorten outer shaft and replace bearing.

Are you on ebay by any chance?  I've been buying slimline propshafts from someone on there and they will make up any combination of lengths to suit but I can't remember whether Caldercraft or Deans will do the same.  It's not an unusual request. There's always the off the shelf versions with the longer exposed shafts for launches etc etc.  One of them may be close enough you only need to trim an inch or so off one end if it's not correct from the start.

Hope that gives you some pointers,

Rich
