Good news and bad news

Colin called with some good news saying the output shaft wonkyness was nothing more that the woodruff key fouling the flywheel keyway. However (there is always a however) that makes the overall runout worse as the flywheels were not parallel and were compensating for the output shaft so this means a new big end journal which will get the flywheels true. Also today I had the output shaft crack tested as when it had been recreated previously they had put no radius where the diameter changed so a potential fracture point, luckily all’s good.

    Is “runout” another way of saying “wonkyness”?
    Actually, the latter term puts me in mind of some sort of lacustrine monster!
