Flexible Shaft Coupling for 6" Twin Disc - 28HP/100RPM Capacity

The R&D Flexible Couplings are fabricated from a contoured flexible disc molded in tough yet resilient new type polyurethane. The contoured disc gives clearance for the bolt heads, and is able to flex freely to take up any temporary misalignment of the engine and shaft, due to flexing of the boat structure or the engine moving on its rubber vibration isolation mountings. Forward thrust is taken in compression on the disc between the two half couplings and reverse thrust is taken again in compression on the disc between the two fail straps. In the unlikely event of a disc failure the steel straps make the coupling fail safe and ensure drive is maintained in both forward and reverse.

To calculate power of coupling required:
Horse Power of Engine x Reduction Ratio x 100 = HP/100RPM
      Engine Speed

Example:
Ford 150 HP at 2500 RPM with Borg Warner Velvet Drive 72C 2:1 Reduction Ratio
Engine Horse Power is 150 HP, Max Rated RPM is 2500, Reduction Ratio is 2:1
150/2500 X 2 x 100 = 12hp per 100RPM
Coupling required is 910-009

The R & D Marine Flexible Coupling fits between the transmission output flange and shaft coupling. It is designed to protect a boat's drivetrain. The unit will reduce vibration, compensate for some misalignment, isolate the shaft and absorb shock loads.

The flexible disc is machined from a resilient and durable polyurethane. It allows the unit to flex, absorbing vibrations and temporary misalignment of the shaft and engine due to movement of the engine or flexing in the vessel's structure.

The polyurethane disc is backed up by two metal compression straps, one on either side of the flexible coupling. These metal straps hold the system in constant compression whether the drivetrain is in forward or reverse. This feature extends the life of the system dramatically.

The R & D Marine Flexible Coupling will also absorb shockloads resulting from gear changes, or the propeller striking a submerged object. The polyurethane disk will distort with light shock loads and is designed to be sacrificial in the event of severe shock load, saving on expensive drivetrain repairs. If the disc is destroyed from massive shockload the metal compression straps keep the coupling intact ensuring that the drive system is functional in both forward and reverse.

Why R&D Marine Flexible Shaft Couplings?
  • Polyurethane flange creates a flexible barrier to reduce drivetrain noise and vibration to quiet your drivetrain
  • Absorbs transmission shock load caused by the propeller and high speed gear changes. This helps to reduce and avoid costly transmission damage
  • Fail safe design, both forward and reverse thrust is taken in compression from the steel straps, giving a durable design even in extreme conditions

FAQ

Return Policy

We don't want to see you stuck with a part that is not right for your application, or that you no longer need.  We issue refunds every day to make sure our customers have a positive purchase experience.  All these are issued as refunds, we do not maintain store credits. Returns must be initiated within 30 days of receiving the order.

However, for various policy, safety, and regulatory reasons, a small number of items are non-returnable for credit.  These are normally noted on the product page and visible at the time of purchase.  See our Returns Policy for full details on product returnability.

For orders where the item has been received is incorrect, defective or has been damaged in transit, we will pay return shipping and either replace the item or refund the amount paid, at the customer's discretion.

If the reason for the return is different, the customer is responsible for inbound and outbound shipping costs.  Shipping costs paid on the original order are non-refundable.  For orders shipped free on our $99 Free Shipping offer, an amount may be deducted from your refund to cover outbound shipping costs if returned.

Special Orders are normally non-cancellable and non-returnable because a lot of additional work must be performed to obtain a special order part that is not ordered very often.  If we are able to facilitate a special order return, you may have up to a 30% restocking fee deducted from your refund to cover manufacturer restocking fees and other associated costs.

Refunds can only be returned to the same method of payment that was originally used to pay for the order.
