I have the proper Ford wrench, but it's too worn to get a good grip. So I made this one that works. An 11/16" combination, a piece of 1" square tubing, a BFH, and heat. The offset is 2".

If I ever have to do that job, I'll use one of my crow's foot wrenches with a short extension. :-)

Any update on the hunt for acceptable runout?

Yep, I turned the shaft around 180 and it was down to .007". I checked it in three places on the shaft as Tom suggested, and it was the same all the way, so I'll try his remedy.
