how to join engine to input shaft with flexible coupling?

Thu, 12/01/2016 - 22:36
Hi Folks

We still have an old style solid driveshaft between engine and vdrive and having issues with input shafts cracking due to slightly off alignment etc. How do people these days have a flexible coupling in there and what do you use?

some other type of flexible coupling?
I'm struggling to find anything here to cope with the torque/horse power and rpm.

Pictures would be great....

Selling parts I'm no longer going to use. The wet longs are in great shape and to be perfect; just polish. Th snails have never been off, so they come with the longs.
The Power glide is built super tough and came from a SKV Marathon Boat. Work perfect and come with the trans to motor adapter.
I have changed the gears in my Champion V-drive from 9's to 18's and now to 28's. Therefore the 18's are for sale.

I have many more pictures. Send me an email and I'll send whatever you wish (
Call with any questions,

Looks like they made a deal with Indiana to keep a 1000 people and the Heating Div for 7 mil in tax breaks. The A/C unit is still moving. This is the part that gets me. The reason they give for the move is not labor but regulations. Apparently the gov have come down hard on A/C in the US so bad that they have driven them out of business or out of the country. So we put regulations in place that makes companies no longer do what they did but it's OK for them to do it a mile on the other side of an imaginary line in the desert and then sell them back to the same people on the other side of that imaginary line? And this does what for the environment? If we put rules in place that are not elsewhere and then make American workers compete against them with that disadvantage they will always lose.

Congratulations California
