Re: Prop Shaft Coupling

A split coupling is held in place by the clamping action and a proper "fit". Good ones will also have a set screw which should always be "spotted" or dimpled into the shaft.

With split couplings it is very important to tighten the clamping bolts evenly, like lug nuts, or you can create an alignment issue. Contrary to popular misconceptions about "splits" they still require a fit & face when installed.
