    Wink SLX 780 Driveshaft Tolerances

    The bearing mating surface on my drive shaft on my 96 SLX is pretty scored.
    I'm just wondering how much I can turn this down on the lathe without jeopardizing the sealability.
    I've attached a couple pictures.

    How much material would need to be removed to get the surface back to smooth?

    Are the seal riding surfaces also damaged?

    I would guess I would have to machine 5-10 thou off the shaft to get it back smooth.
    The rear seal in the shaft bearing was completely chewed up when I pulled it apart.
    But the roller bearing and the front seal were still fine.

    So just to follow up, the shaft seal riding surface on these drive shaft measures 7/8" or 0.875".
    The OD of the spline is 0.790".
    Just for those who are looking to do some machining on their shafts.
