Couper off

Just (finally) removed the coupler from a 1.25 inch stainless shaft. Before I put it back again just wondering if a light sanding of the coupler face with emery cloth is required and is it advisable to oil or grease the facing.
... thanks

Re: Couper off

Coat the shaft with some suitable never seize and then re-assemble,,,oh,,,dressing the shaft with very light emery is a good idea.

Re: Couper off

Thanks Nemo55....
I was referring to the facing of the coupler where it attaches to the tranny with 4 bolts. Should it be oiled or greased on the facing? Also... would a light emery cloth rub on the facing be a good idea?

... thanks again

Re: Couper off

If the coupler came off with any galling you really cant re-use it. As far as the face, a light buffing with emery cloth is OK, but if there's any really pitting you're better off with a new coupling. You also should not put any grease here, as the coupling faces are supposed to be hard against one another, but once assembled, grease away!!
