Re: Output Shaft Coupling
When you say technical reference, are you looking for a spec on the wire? The screws?
On the shaft coupling there are normally two set screws set 90° apart with square heads that have a hole through. The screws are turned into indentations in the shaft, tightened and the binding wire is fed through the holes in the squared heads to bind the screws to each other so that if they come loose they can't turn themselves out.
If there is a specification for this, I have never seen it. Some would say use stainless steel wire but given the fact that all the other parts are steel, I always use a plated steel binding wire typically used in normal automotive transmissions. The average auto spares store should have it in stock. I have never had to replace this wire except when removed to loosen the set screws.
Hope this helps
