both companies will ship worldwide,R and D are manufacturers who will supply if it is a stock item

lancing marine are marine marinization/fabrication experts who might be able to help if it is a non stock item.

good luck

Re: Please Help! looking for coupler

Farymann diesel part # is where I found it , only 3 that are known to be still in stock, for anyone who is still using it, if you have the ability to move your shaft (I did) and a new coupling is on the way from r&d marine, much cheaper than the $800.00 rough expensive with shipping cost to Alaska, I did a temporary fix with (4) inch stainless bolts, going the entire way through, and a single 5 inch to get it started by compressing it with nylon washers. No noticeable vibration when running but have spares in case , and waiting for the new part from r&d to get in.
