Ahhh, right you sure did.. And it is set up for a splined pump shaft, which you do not have. You'll need to send it back so I can swap it over to hex. I remember now you got a few things from me in anticipation of buying a new Mokai, then found a used one instead.

No charge, just cover shipping.  ;)

This is why I installed the Painless Clutch BEFORE my Mokai even saw water... Did my homework with the purchase of the Painless Clutch Unit. I don't anticipate  a blown shaft........... The first investment for my Mokai and worth it!!!

Just curious, do you build up the shafts with weld and then machine them to size?  Or do you machine new stock to make new shafts?

I media blast the shaft end, weld material to build it back up, machine it to a blank, then cut the splines. Takes about 45 minutes all together. Making a shaft from scratch takes a couple hours, so there is no sense making new ones when I can repair any of the old ones easier, and for less. Mokai charges $90 for a new shaft, I will fix an old one for $50.

Tom
What kind of tap for the thread on the shaft - 5/8 "G18 (18 turns per inch?)?
and what the angle between the turns - 50 degrees?
