Components consist of:
A - Martin "Weld In" boss
B - Martin taper lock insert for boss (to suit 1.125" motor shaft with .250 keyway)
C - machined up adaptor to marry the Martin Assembly to the cut out spline centre
This is machined to suit the required distance....
D - the cut out spline centre
E - the set screws used to release the coupler from the motor shaft (the great feature of going this way)
The distance spacer - Martin fitting is a press fit on the left side - cut-out clutch centre on the right side....
The assembly needs to be held together as one unit for welding purposes.
This is done by machining up a press fit stepped centre alignment mandrel with a suitable hole for a bolt or threaded rod.
A - shows the scrap bits used to sandwich the assembly together
B- shows the access hole required for the set screws (needed for disassemble)
