Big shout out to fellow member CRFarnsworth. I was I need of a flex disc for my 1250 Cub and he came through for me. Good thing he only lives a mile away lol. Now I can move on with the 1250 restoration.
Thanks Rick!

Your "flex" disc looks very distorted....is it installed correctly? Something missing?

Kinda what I thought? What could be missing though? When I took flex disc off, there was only one. Pictures I've seen, show 2 flex disc? These could be used flex disc, causing the distortion, but the material they are made from are in much better shape than I took off.

Isn't the purpose of the flex disc to allow the joint to move like a universal joint?
If so, the bolts should be staggered, not lined up?

I don't think it's quite right.

Looks like you have an alignment issue with length. The disc should be fairly straight. It looks like it is being drawn away from the fan or the coupler that the fan is on isn't forward far enough. I'm not familiar with cubs but I'd say something isn't right. I'd take the coupler off and set the shaft back to see what would be necessary to get the two flanges to align within the thickness of the disc. Is there supposed to be some kind of a spacer between the discs?

I agree with the alignment issue. Looks like the drive shaft attachment should come back farther.

We always called that a "rag" joint. Looks like a mis-alignment problem

I have to agree with MH81.

Some cubs only had 1 disk and others had 2 depending on when they were made. the difference is where the coupler is attached to the driveshaft, to run 2 the pin needs driven out of the coupler so it can slide on the shaft adn you'll need to drill a new hole for the pin or buy a new driveshaft.
