Re: Spun a hub, is this shaft toast?
That's where the keyway cut into the shaft when it spun. You can try to reuse the shaft, but it won't be as strong. Loctite has some stuff that will help resurface the shaft, but that's a lot of damage and it isn't designed for it. It would probably work for awhile.
However, all hope is not lost. There are some companies (look to pump rebuilding places) that use a material specifically designed to resurface the shaft. It's a polymer you put in place, and when it hardens, you turn the shaft to meet spec. Someone with a metal lathe would obviouly have to do this. You would also try the JB Weld trick, you don't have a lot to loose at this point.
Which side did you spin? I have another wide track axle sitting here, 2 piece, that is doing nothing, but it's only one side. That looks like the driver's side though, which is the one I don't have.
