Bought a bunch of Tiger Wood for my flatbed. $333 later I have 15 1x6" 9' lengths.

Just be glad that bearing retainer isn't for a T98...it took me 2 months to find a good one. Good news is I have a three of them stashed away under my bed in my college apartment. Sad part is you are about ready to pass me progress whys on my 50' F6 after 2 years. Keep up the good work!!

Sam

Way to push through the problems!

I would've waved the white flag and sat on it for about a month!

38 Days Remaining

All the parts for the trans arrived thanks to Mark.
Radiator arrived from Jegs.
New front main leaves arrived from Eaton Detroit Spring.

Otherwise I've been gone for a week to North Carolina and have mountains of work work to catch up on..

Is this fixable? How would I replace that shaft and how does it separate?

Personally, I'd be looking at replacing the starter (although that one unfortunately looks pretty new). The shaft is one piece from the bearing at the commutator all the way up through the armature and the starter drive. It is possible to remove the entire starter drive mechanism from the shaft, but the shaft is still integral to the armature. I think that it would be difficult at best to ever straighten that shaft enough to not have the drive wobble and hang up.

Starter was bought with a fresh rebuild so I'm trying to avoid tossing it. I dropped it off at the "best auto electrical shop in town" according to the local mechanics and they're calling me tomorrow to tell me if their shaft straightener can fix it.
