F355 Propeller Shaft (need engineering specs or an affordable shaft)

I need part number 162909 propeller shaft. I would prefer to have the engineering specs but would settle for a propeller shaft that wasn't in the 4 digit price range. 348 prop shafts can be had for $250 or so, but they do not appear compatible with the F355, but I can't be sure about all the measurements until I remove my transmission and get the rest of the measurements on the F355 propeller shaft.

If I can get a good price on having the shaft made I hope to do a small run of them so that I can help others and have a spare as well. This part is no longer available from Ferrari and is extremely expensive if you are lucky enough to find one.

Making these is not going to be easy. Are you positive they are no longer available? Did you contact a dealer or a parts reseller? If you did not contact a dealer, I suggest you try them.

They were available only a year ago but they were thousands.

Ferrari thinks they are NLA unless there is some NOS lying around.

The dealers can access the inventory levels of other dealers (maybe not all...)

Did you try Russ at Ferrparts.com? He has scrapped quite a few 355's
