Bent '54 SC Stearing Shaft

I am working on a '54 SC with a bent stearing shaft. I tried to remove the shaft to straighten it but the support that bolts to the transmission would not go beyond the bend. Can I heat the shaft and bend it with a pipe while it is still attached to the tractor? It is too bad not to fix.
I can use some good ideas!!

Yes, you can straighten shaft while on the tractor by heating them with a cutting torch. First mount a piece of metal close to the stearing shaft to use as a guide. Spin the shaft and when the shaft stays the the same distance from the guide then you have it straight. I don't understand how so many SC steering shafts get bent? Is it from parking them under trees?

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
