So yes, the shaft is bigger too now that you mention it. So they gave me the turbo shaft (heh) for the year not the N/A which I asked for. OK so it's their mistake, good to know; I'll go in for an exchange. Doesn't matter so much whose fault it is, I'm not like that, it's just a case of who pays or doesn't pay for the extra shipping and restocking. Dave Hinz
