    Glad you took my advice 'cause you probably saved your engine as a result.

    After mulling this over for a while, I realize that it was GOOD that you had a stock drive shaft....

    Think about it for a moment...
    If you had that same exact failure, but with a hardened drive shaft, and the shaft did not break, where would you be with a chunk of metal floating around in your pump chewing it up, eating itself from the inside, and spreading the debris through your engine? You'd have no idea this was going on and over time your oil pressure would be declining. Instead of a sudden and relatively harmless breakdown, you'd have the heartache of watching your engine die a slow death.

    Just a thought.
    I would still probably run a hardened shaft myself, but in this particular instance, those are my thoughts.
    My mind wanders... ;)
