    Bent prop shaft

    I have a bent prop shaft on a 1990 Bravo one. lower is original untouched 700 hours. Upper is freshly rebuilt. What should I do? Rebuild entire lower/ Replace just the prop shaft? Anybody got anything available pronto? Thanks

    A friend of mine is a Merc mechanic and say he has straightened quite a few. Use a micrometer and a hammer...they bend back as easy as they bend front.
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.
