modding 07 pump shaft info/ compared to 2011 parts.few questions 300x parts are in.
ordered my 2011 pump, nut, bearing, bushing, etc 2 weeks back turns out the shaft, nut and bushing are on back order and there is no eta for arrival. everything else i am having mailed to me now, and the remainder of the parts will arrive when they do.
i want to just mod my 07 shaft, but given i cant get the nut i need a temporary alternative. can i use any SS nut basically?
also what needs to be machined on the shaft to work with the new bearings and nut.
if their is a right up i would love to see it, as of right now i have jsut read the basics of what need to be done.

alright so i am looking at teh 300x pump diagram, so it looks like the shaft is machined to fit the extra bearing. do i just machine it exactly to what the 2nd bearing length is? also can i machine my stock bushing to work?

You take the measurement of the bearing then have them machine the shaft down for that measurement (18mm?) the nut is a standard thread 3/4-16 and you can use any nut you want.

awesome thanks a bunch for clearing it up. going to machine my shaft and get the end threaded sometime this week. guess ill have the shaft, bushing, and nut for a spare, hell might as well order up another set of bearing and ill have everything.
any idea on the bushing? what needs to be done to make it work.

If these new 2011 parts come from Japan it may be a while; there is still alot of disorganization over there from the Tidal Waves in March. There are probably alot of "2010 pump shaft" parts available . . . to this day I have not heard of a 2010 double bearing pump set up failing. So to me it would be better to just get the 2010 set up and call it a day. I WOULD NOT ride around on the 2009 and earlier set ups "waiting" for the 2011 parts to come off backorder . . . that is a recipe for disaster IMO.

Its not just the 300 drive shaft thats backordered, its the bearings too. I have 2010 set up but have put on about 50 hrs. +. It just makes me nervous entering the 50 to 100hr. zone. I wanted 300 set up or at least new bearings but I think it will be a while until they are available. I can see that modding the shaft is not that hard to do for some but I do not want to deviate from OEM. Not much choice but to keep on with fingers crossed until 300 parts come in. Unless someone here buried extra parts in their backyard for a rainy day!

nicjak your right you did. missed that part. will machine this once my bearings come in. only stuff that is on back order for me is the bushing, shaft and nut. nut i found i will being going standard thread vs left hand per this guys advice.
