Re: Shaft Coupling Stuck to Transmission Flange

Looks like an old 'drive saver' coupling.. could it be there are bolts on the transmission side too? Also many couplings have 'blind' threaded holes that can be used with bolts to separate the two halves.. maybe have a look for that too.

Also... maybe you're trying to separate the wrong parts??
