I was measuring my torque tube input shaft. I put a dial indicator on the base of the input shaft and turned it. It is 15 thousandths of an inch off center as it turns. I was wondering if this shitty tolerance is normal of just on my tube.

Mine makes rotating noises at low speeds... I've always suspected mine is off also... next time I have it out (well, actually, before I put it back in (blew engine up)), I will have to check mine out.

The input shaft to the torque bolts to a rubber flex coupler. The input bearing is a ball bearing. Without support at the bitter end of the input shaft I believe you can expect some run out. If the unit is still apart make sure the surface of the input shaft end (the section that goes into the pilot bearing ) is nice and smooth. Make sure your pilot bearing is in good shape as well. We had a pilot bearing fail and it made up shifting very difficult. Down shifts we almost normal.
