    I believe the driveshaft was stainless when it left the factory !------Lack of maintenance and greasing the splines results in the rusting of the crankshaft.

    I'm interested in knowing why the driveshaft was so embedded in the crank. is there an electrical problem or was it simple galvanic corrosion combined

    If the cranl and cylinder walls are serviceable everything else can be had. Pull the gearbox apart and inspect the driveshaft bearings propshaft and gear
