Well, the driveshaft flex couplers we got were no good ( already broken...) so I finally sourced some appriate material from a conveyor belt maker in town , and made 'em my frigging self.

Note to self, make a .pdf and just send it to the conveyor guys, they have the neatest water jet.... :big_hug:

Make a .pdf and upload it here! Looks simple enough for most folks to make theirs with. Those look good.

Thanks fellas. :wave:
Pops took me out for breakfast today, what a guy ! Yummy eggs and bacon. :-)



This evening I got out the calipers again, to measure up the steel input coupler that was all toasty. I was all worried I was not going to be able to make this here at home with any decent tolerance, but I think I will be just fine. Old holes and plates are .020 to .030 out at certain places, tolerances are well, close enough I guess ( insert sarcastic note here) . The coupler bodies are punched , and I guess their dies were worn on this one LOL.

Had to get out the compass, and remember from back in high school how to trisect a circle, twice. T = 120 degrees, then half of that again to get all six centers. :rolling:

I sure as heck can make one at least as good as theirs , pardon the chicken scratch on the layout . r = what????

Got a bit closer to making the steel input driveshaft coupler tonight, Listening to the Packers game gave me plenty of time to work LOL...wifey was in the den yelling at the TV, while I was out making metal bits LOL

I am just a bit closer on this for Pops.

Coupler is looking good.

Thanks Wagon, after last nights loss, me and and the dogs were hiding LOL....

Got some more progress done on the coupler this evening. Made a rough fixture to pound out the bushing side, turned out that was kinda handy for cutting the welds off the old flange/ coupler as well.

Make the final center bore, had to finish that with a die grinder... It was still well within resonable tolerance though. Pressed the flange onto the coupler, some further grinding, then ready for welding tomorrow night after work and picking up some gas for the TIG machine.

Thanks for posting all the pics and info on doing this. I could make one now if needed. Might take a bit longer, though.

No problem Ken, just kinda having fun with it. Trying to use what I have on hand to make the repair in a decent enough fashion that it will go back together nicely.

I'd say you are doing a fine job. Looks nearly factory already!

Thanks Ken, I appreciate that comment. I did get that argon today, but ended up working late, so no progress on the coupler today other than gettin gas , a fine lunch, then the satisfaction of working late to get some stuff done on another project.

That's a very nice repair !! Just be sure it is indexed correctly if it is for a shaft end. But if its the engine side or trans input flange it doesn't matter. Its not much different than a u-joint driveshaft.
I had a twisted shaft on my diesel conversion and I didn't notice it until I ran it... man did it shake... I though I put in wrong, it was that bad. Then I noticed the twist. Cut off the flange and re welded it and never looked back. Been flawless ever since.
