WTB: "Dead Axle" for D2 4U

Does anyone have a nice straight "dead axle" for a D2 4U that they would like to sell? D24U1275SPG is the serial of my pigeon toed crawler.
I have not checked with Florin or General Gear yet. Shipping to 95993 ZIP code.
Thanks in advance, JM

Put it in a big press and straighten it. That's what I've done in the past.

Your right, if it got bent then it can be bent straight. Put it in a lathe and keep checking it for out of roundness until it's straight again.

Juice, is it bent or is it worn? Mine is straight but worn, so the track frames spread at the front going forward, and come straight when reversing. Mine is "supposed" to be going into the shop to be built up one of these days.....

Yeah Neil has a point too. Shaft worn and bushings on track frame it fits into. Not to mention the slides that attach to the track frames idler axle and bushings all play a roll in keeping everything aligned.
Build up what you can and re machine and make new bushings as needed. I'm doing that on my Fifteen rebuild now. We have a D2 & D4 that's getting the same treatment.

All good points fellas. I noticed it being pigeon toed, never noticed any slop or movement, so guessing slightly bent. Runs fine as is, but the folks that know me, are aware that isn't my style. Would not take much to correct I am hoping, just looking at easiest way to remedy! Thanks. JM
