Rear output shaft key

PostPost by: gav » Tue Feb 10, 2009 8:13 pm

Hi

I need to replace the keys which locate the rear hub on the output shaft.

Mine measures 3/16 diameter by 1.46" long.

Does anyone know if these are the correct dims please.

Many thanks
Gavin

Make sure you see the section in Dave Bean's catalog about modifying the key and keyway to avoid creating a stress riser. Bean may also have the key.

Just in case you are still wondering if your dimensions are correct - yes, they are.
