If anybody ever rebuilds their T-5 like I am in the process of doing they need to look at their main shaft closely. Where the imput shaft connects to the main shaft via needle bearings pay special attention here. The needles use the tip of the main shaft as a race. The shaft frequently becomes worn, pitted, and ruff from moisture mainly or perhaps metal shavings. Whatever the case may be if you have that polished finish worn away it can cause play between your shafts and for the high rpms those things go through, not good. You may hear a whining sound.
Main shafts can be pricey new. I found a place in Ft. Worth, TX that you guys might be familiar with, but if not this is what this post is for. Precision Products at shaftrepair.com. Nice people to talk to and very easy to deal with. He'll have it done in about 24 hrs so you don't have too much down time. Shipped my shaft to him yesterday, expecting it back tomorrow. Check out their website. Their phone is 817-378-0881

Forgot this info. I'm not advertising for them in any way because I'm not connected to them I am just simply putting out good service. They build up the metal then smooth it down to the appropriate diameter. ONly charge $45. Here's a helpful link with pictures.

Anybody else know any other places to get this done? $45 is cheaper than getting a new one.
