Default #6's and speedi-sleeve

We have 3 sets of #6 drives (2 dry sump) that might need shafts; there's nothing wrong with the shafts except wear at the seal surface.
Instead of replacing #6 prop shafts because of wear at the seal area has anyone used the speedi-sleeves from SKF?

If that won't work what are some options?
Thanks

I know that Craig Colabella has used them on our outboard gearcase quite often.

Thanks Ryan: I believe that's a good example.

I seem to recall that's what Craig told me when he dry sumped the 6's. Do you have the current contact info for Craig? His web site is not active.

Craig put them on both of my #6's two years ago when they were gone through. No issues and it beats the chit out of buying new shafts!!

Number 6 shafts dont seem to last especially in salt water.

A bunch of guys who do 6 work can install the sleeves.

You can do a speedy sleeve or have the shafts ceramic coated.

Thanks: hadn't thought about ceramic.

Once again JT @ TNT came through and was a huge help with the speedi sleeves. Thanks Johnny!
