Additional DescriptionThe 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 drive train is in forward or reverse. This feature extends the life of the system dramatically.
The R & D Flexible Coupling will also absorb shock loads, 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 drive train repairs. If the disc is destroyed from massive shock load, the metal compression straps keep the coupling intact, ensuring that the drive system is functional in both forward and reverse.
