    I'd be talking to a machine shop.
    I'd want to know if the seal contact area on a shaft can be resurfaced
    without weakening the original temper of the steel and to recreate the original shape.
    I'm no machinist, but I wonder if it could be brazed or welded, then put on a lathe to re-cut.
    The axial reference points are probably still visible on the ends of the shaft.
    Makes centering the shaft for cutting match the original work.

    I would think grinding and pressing on a Wear sleeve ...
