Re: Shaft Coupling Stuck to Transmission Flange
Thanks for the thoughts Faster! It's certainly a weird looking thing and doesn't resemble any of the couplings I've seen on other threads and blogs. Sadly, both faces of the coupling are smooth, so I don't think blind holes exist, and I can't see any other ways of fixing the shaft in place, except for maybe those big screws mounted in rubber that are just barely visible in the above picture on the sides of the coupling. The four bolts shown match up to the transmission diagram in the parts manual (sorry I didn't upload it before - very slow computer).
I thought maybe the shaft was threaded and somehow locked into the transmission, but I can't get the shaft and the transmission to turn independently either.
