Need Driveshaft Coupler

Hey All,

I need a replacement driveshaft coupler, either just the coupler or the entire driveshaft with coupler, the splines need to be in good condition.

I have cash in hand, just need photos and a price.

Oh no, your coupler had damage, too? Geeze those things usually never wear.

Cheapest shaft on fleabay I can find that shows the splines.

Cheaper but no pic of splines

I really don't think I have a spare but I'll double check my parts box and if I do you can have it.

Actually, I've seen a lot of stripped couplers on here. I think the coupler is probably softer than the input shaft splines.

Ebay is usually the best bet, if you watch you can usually find a whole shaft around $20.

Someone on here may pop up with one too.

Can also check ebay stores like, pinwall cycle or williescycle .. they have so many items not all are always listed in searches.

Yeah, the wear on mine makes the splines look more like triangles rather than square splines

I'm wary of buying one off of fleabay without a good photo of the splines, that one you linked to THTanner only showed the engine side splines not the splines of the coupler

So far I haven't found anything that will work, at least not at a reasonable price :/

If anyone has one in their spare parts bin then I'd be glad to take it off your hands.
