How much does a new prop shaft cost?

In most cases, a new drive shaft costs somewhere between $300 and $1300. Fortunately, it only takes about an hour to replace it. A repair usually costs much less, around $200 to $300 including parts and labor, but this also depends on how many parts need to be replaced.

What is Aqualoy?

Aqualoy 17 is a precipitation hardening stainless steel, which has the highest strength and hardness of all stainless steel boat shafting alloys over 2” in diameter. The composition of Aqualoy 17 has been carefully balanced to provide the maximum corrosion resistance possible in a heat-treatable stainless steel.

What is a cutlass bearing?

cutlass bearing (plural cutlass bearings) (nautical) A bearing on the drive shaft of a vessel, usually made of brass with an inner grooved rubber lining that is lubricated by the surrounding water entering the grooves as it rotates. It is a variant of the stave bearing.

Can a drive shaft be repaired?

We can preform minor drive shaft repairs to complete replacements. Our drive shaft service includes a warranty that covers parts and labor for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. The axles (front and rear) holds the majority of weight of a car and connects the wheels to the car.

What are the different types of drive shafts?

The Different Drive Shaft Components

  • Drive Shaft. This aluminum tube is responsible for transferring torque to the drive wheels from the transmission at a constant speed.
  • U-Joints.
  • Differential Pinion Yoke.
  • Slip Yoke.
  • Drive Shaft Slip Yoke Felt.
  • Drive Shaft Bolt.
  • CV Socket Yoke.
  • CV Weld Yoke.

What Aquamet 22?

AQUAMET 22 is an austenitic stainless steel with an outstanding combination of strength, toughness and corrosion resistance. Its corrosion resistance is equal to or better than any other boat shafting material, even better than most high-nickel alloys.

Should you grease a cutlass bearing?

Conventional cutless bearings as used by many boats in P-brackets and shaft logs are usually either a bronze or tufnol sleeve lined with a nitrile or chloroprene rubber. These must be lubricated by a flow of water, as your adviser has told you.

What is a dripless shaft seal?

Face Seals. Often referred to as dripless, face seals compress a fixed bearing against a collar that is attached to the shaft. A thin film of water forms on the interface between the stainless and the carbon, lubricating the seal. A hose connects the fixed bearing to the stern tube.

Can drive shaft be repaired?

Usually, the Drive Shaft Repair costs will differ based on what caused the issue and how fast it can be repaired. If you just have to replace it, that would be anywhere from $500 to $1000. However, you can also expect the cost of the parts to be around half that number and the labor costs around $200.

What causes a drive shaft to go bad?

Lack of lubrication can cause damage to the driveshaft and its components. High-use driveshafts should be inspected regularly since they can wear prematurely due to excessive movement.

How heavy is a driveshaft?

Steel, of course, is heavier than aluminum or carbon fiber. A 3.5″ o.d. shaft made of chrom-moly tips the scales at 20.6 pounds. Aluminum is by far more popular, and M-W’s exclusive 7075 alloy driveshafts are 13.7 pounds. A 3.5″ o.d. 7075 shaft weighs about 33% less than an equal size chrom-moly shaft.

What is driveshaft spline?

Splines are ridges or teeth on a drive shaft that matches with grooves in a mating piece and transfer torque to it, maintaining the angular correspondence between them. For instance, a gear mounted on a shaft might use a male spline on the shaft that matches the female spline on the gear.

How tight should a cutlass bearing be?

Press Fit/Shrink Fit Never use dry ice to cool a Cutlass Bearing. The interference fit between the outside diameter of the bearing and the inside diameter of the housing should not be more than a light press fit. Chilled bearings should be pressed into the housing, not pounded.
