Re: Shaft Coupling Stuck to Transmission Flange
Thanks for the tips and humor! They certainly brought a smile. I'm well on the road to recovery, and should be able to get back on the boat after another week or two.
Eric - those pics are super helpful, and, though your arrangement is much cleaner, looks like mine! Do the cross arms grip that coupler lip at all? Or do they just sort of rest on it. Back when I was in the laz working on it, I tried putting my thin pry (actually, a thin steel putty knife) in between the coupler and the flange arm and giving the pry some light taps, but couldn't get the wedge into the seam - I assume because of the corrosion. Did you have a similar experience? Just wondering what you meant by the lip engaging the cross arms of the flange. Thanks!
