      Do not have oven hot enough... I guess

      Some internet research would show price range for
      similar items 250 to 600 U$D but no luck for particular item.

      Our marina magicians would easily double that budget
      so... project boat

    You should be able to have a machine shop with a proper press to bend it, not much heat possibly no heat depending on how much bend there is.
    You may need to re-align your engine wether or not you buy one or have it straightened.
    Replacing a strut is not that big of a job, shaft can be left in place, but mist be re-aligned.
    Been there-done that. 2x

        If you are still in need of the strut, I have one. The strut is new and has a cutlass bearing for 1 3/4 inch shaft. Change the cutlass bearing to a 2" version and you are set. It was manufactured by Marine Hardware and has both casting numbers for the 1 3/4" and 2" cutlass bearings .
        Price is $300

          Price seem to be more than fare. Where can I see an item? Could you PM me.
          Thank you all!

        The ACTUAL bent is quite significant. Camera located 90 to the floor surface.

          Have the strut straightened as straight as possible then support the shaft so the tranny flange and shaft flange is as straight as possible.
          Then align the strut as close as possible, then align the engine/trany in the water after 24 hours.
          Even with a new strut you need to go through this process.
