Glad the thermal spraying went well. They look to be well set-up and have a lot of expertise. I had some potential crevice corrosion at the SB, which was why I replaced the shafts. Maybe I could have repaired the shafts instead!!

But, as the thread below discusses, shaft failures are very likely more often caused by poor taper fit and particularly keyways. I found the thread very informative.

Shaft broke off at the cutlass bearing
