Hi George and Kim, any competent fitter and turner can build up the shaft and turn it in a lathe to original specs. I recently did this with the shaft of the salt water pump on my volvo TMD 22. A new shaft from volvo was quoted at NZ$500, a complete pump at over NZ$1000. Had the rebuild done for NZ$80.
