when my shaft broke, it seems to have taken out my spindle bearings and ground the bearing race into the spindle it self, its so ground that a little grinding of my own and i can make it flush again for a new bearing to be inserted. Can anyone see anything in these pictures that would make that a bad idea?
and yes it will fit in round, its not nearly out of wack as it may look

Yowsers! Mine got chewed a little right at the back edge, but nothing like that.

Off road only and avoiding water and I think you'll be ok. But the seal rides in that area, and if you can't slick it up pretty darned good, it's going to eat that seal alive. But, I think it could probably be cleaned up enough to mount the bearing since the deeper parts seem mostly ok. If you know someone with a lathe, you might want to get them to clean it up for you. Then you could also weld the worst of the gouges too...
