Dual Taper, Pricing Good For Shafts Up To 5' Long
System Drive Shaft. The patented A.R.E. System is a double-taper drive shaft and coupling setup designed to greatly reduce the time and effort needed to remove and replace drive shafts. When used with tools developed by A.R.E. for drive train maintenance, the System typically cuts installation time in half.
System drive shafts are made of the finest shaft materials and are individually inspected to ensure the tapers have less than .003" T.I.R. run-out and the coupling face run-out is within .002" T.I.R. The shafts are straightened to less than .002" on 42" centers, producing a complete assembly far exceeding industry standards.
We have extensive records on drive shaft lengths for may boats. Often we can supply the correct shaft length with only the year, make and model of the boat.
HOWEVER: boat manufacturers sometimes change shaft lengths during the model year. This, along with many other factors, can make determining shaft length from the year, make and model of the boat LESS than 100% reliable.
To INSURE YOU RECEIVE the correct shaft length, PLEASE SUPPLY US WITH DIMENSION A - OR - DIMENSION B FROM THE PICTURE IN THIS SHAFT SYSTEM.
Easily do this at checkout in the "Special Instructions For Your Order" section.
If the shaft is STILL IN THE BOAT, just measure from the coupler face to the tip of the shaft on the prop side.
