KMP2 gap

I have a problem to hook. Give a strong stride. I examined the disc coupling and I felt good. By rotating the shaft holding the shaft of output, we find a gap.
The box is 1000 hours of use. Is that normal?
Excuse my English. I use the google translator because I speak no English.

I'm having difficulty reading the message.

Are you saying?

The couplings do not line up longitudinal.

Or

The couplings are not parallel to each other.

With 1000 hours, the motor may need alignment. Check the motor mounts.

I think what he is saying is that he has 'backlash' /rotational play in the transmission. There is alway some play, but without it being quantified, it is difficult to say whether it is normal or not.

KMP@ gap

tanks Mr. r.furborough, it is correct.
The case is that with only 1000h of use seems too big a gap. My concern is whether I can still continue using this reversor.A backlash is in gear or there is any piece that may have broken? If the English are incomprensivel, wait because the text sent to a friend who speaks English and we will soon have a text intelligible.
