It is good to see that even you are still chewing on this problem in your spare time. Just out of curiosity how often do you see worn splines nowadays.
I think that last 4 mm stay "unworn" on a destroyed part but the splines end about 2mm before the end of the shaft. Once the hub goes those extra 2mm get destroyed by the stepped down portion of the spline profile. I would appreciate feedback.
I want to be unique, just like everybody else.
