    Bent prop shaft tolerance

    I hit a rock. Yes, i know. . .

    The prop shaft of my 150 Hp Optimax is slightly off center by 1-2 mm (1/12 inch) and I detect a wobble.

    What is the tolerance ?

    Replace it. I wouldn't run a propshaft that bad if it was on my 7.5 Merc fishing motor much less a 150.

    I did the same thing a couple of years ago and a machine shop put it in a press and bent it back. I would check around for a shop that has done this before but it only cost me a case of beer and it was done.
