i installed many couplings over the years when i worked for cummins diesel. couplings are designed so the male pilot fits snugly into the female coupling. that is the only thing that keeps it in alignment. you can't rely on the bolts to hold it in alignment. i always aligned the shaft to less than .003" and never had any problems. i would be happy to answer any questions.

Liberals are people who care about others. Freethinkers are not constrained by the myths of religion.
