No Ken I don't think so, as I have run a roller bearing for a governor support since 2000 on a stock shaft and I definately have a grove.  This is after about 600 passes on the carrier and tail shaft.  Its just the roller bearings are so much harder than the tailshaft.  You can probably go farther with an aftermarket tail shaft and reduce the wear somewhat but the bearings will still be harder than the shaft.  This is why they use bushings so they can be replaced and not harm the shaft.  This is more about marketing than good sense.  We have in our minds that a roller bearing has less friction than a bushing and this might be true but I doubt it will show up on a time slip and running one comes with a price.  A life time of bushings would not pay for 1/4 of a good tailshaft.

Have to agree with Ken on the stock band. Had Dave Coan tell me that the stock piece was better but was replaced because of the asbestos content. I ask because I had been given 6 brand new bands by a friend who was closing down his transmission shop.
