Components consist of:

A - Martin "Weld In" boss

B - Martin taper lock insert for boss (to suit 1.125" motor shaft with .250 keyway)

C - machined up adaptor to marry the Martin Assembly to the cut out spline centre

This is machined to suit the required distance....

D -  the cut out spline centre

E - the set screws used to release the coupler from the motor shaft (the great feature of going this way)

The distance spacer - Martin fitting is a press fit on the left side - cut-out clutch centre on the right side....

The assembly needs to be held together as one unit for welding purposes.

 This is done by machining up a press fit stepped centre alignment mandrel with a suitable hole for a bolt or threaded rod.
