thanks for the thought. With my reverse V-drive set up it must have broken between the stuffing box flanges and the hull, so it seems that the stuffing box is implicated...never noticed any vibrations etc. I'm just not understanding how you break a 1 1/4 inch steel bar without any warnings, and without any adjacent torque
